I only use the barn fridge during summer, for those seeds that didn't
germinate the previous winter. One year I didn't take them out until
Dec. They were frozen solid when I took them out, but they showed no
problem when thawed out. They were faily tall and basiucally white.
Seeds are dried out before planting. The seeds for the past two years
were soaked and washed daily for 5-10 days before planting. This has
increased germination rate.

Do you allow the seeds to fully dry after harvesting the pod and
away until a desired planting time or sow them immediately?
I have a
fridge in my barn too, but during the winter it freezes in it unless
a light kept on in it. Seeds would probably be better off in my house

I have 'hatched"
seeds many times in
a fridge over summer. Normal fridge temperature. These
planted flats of seeds that didn't germinate over winter.
the seeds are germinating after three
months at this temperature, as long
as they didn't dry out.
They start to germinate in fridge.
germination this past winter in cold room in
garage. I had a small space
heater on low to kkep them
from freezing. the ones that dried out didn't
and are now in barn fidge.
Worst germination ever was
when I had seeds in cold
greenhouse. The high temperatures resulted in very
levels of germination.
