Probably need enough seeds to do a three way trial - one batch fresh to stratify, one dry without soaking before stratifying (soaking after potting), one with soaking before stratifying. From several different genetic mixtures.

Too much work for me these days! Plus it's unusual for me to get enough good seeds from any one cross to be able to try it. It has happened occasionally in a really good breeding season, but not often.

What we
need to do is to split the seeds from several large pods into two groups and
let one half from each pod dry, and plant (or stratify) the other half without
letting them dry, then compare the rates for each half by pod.  Maybe next
year I will give this a try.
