For the umpteenth time - burrito'ing isn't for everybody - if outdoor germination works for you and gives you results you are happy with, by all means DON'T go to the extra trouble.

And if outdoor germination gives satisfactory results, I'd be very surprised if burrito'ing/soaking etc changed things.

Outdoor germination just doesn't give satisfactory results for everybody! microclimate here is <not> good for most cultivars available commercially which is why I started breeding them in the first place.

That's why.
