  Hello Zack,

  Monstera deliciosa seems to have evolved or have been selected to have few or in some cases no seeds in the fleshy fruit, or perhaps because there are no pollinating bees/beetles here they produce few or no seeds, but when you do come across a seed or two well concealed in the flesh they are large, about the size of a BIG green pea, my plant on a tree stump in my front yard is grown from a seed I collected from a fruit we ate in Jim and Loretta Enck`s yard when Wilbert Hetterschied ( 'Lord P' )visited WPB MANY years ago.   If you bite into the seed by accident, your mouth will itch!!
  Good luck,

  Julius
