Yes Dana they started germinating 6 days after planting...these seed were 
picked very green. I picked the pods and shelled them into baby food jars 
leaving the lids off them while sitting them in a cool dark area. Some did 
develope a fungus but very small amount which didn't seem to hamper the 
germination. Other seed were picked at different stages so therefore all were 
drier than these in this first report. The only cold treatment the others 
were given was in my unheated greenhouse. I used Pro-Mix a seed starter 
soiless mix. I then kept them watered till they germinated at which time I 
would let the soil dryout then water as needed. I would fertilize with 
miracle-gro at 1/4 strength every 4 weeks. Hope this helps...
