Ripening Seed Pods
Donald Mosser asked:
: Anyone, I have a pod on BROTHER CARL (TB) still hanging on outside, despite
: the mild frosts we've had. My question (and ofcourse I have one) is what
: will the pod look like when ripe? It's still green and fairly plump with
: pronounced ridges. Should it turn brown, dry, and split prior to harvest?
I don't know what effect frosts will have. A spring pod pales from green
through beige to tan and usually splits before it reaches the brown stage.
: Has any
: hybridizer ever thought of selling mature seed pods or seeds from known
: crosses (especially if you have surplus that you can't grow out)?
I don't sell them, but do give them out as bonuses, on request, with any order.
