Charles I find that it is very important to set seed on the last flowers on
the scape or you are most likely to get die back of the scape and the pods
that you want will not have time to ripen. I nearly always leave the last
two flowers to the bees.  They are better at the game than I am.

Subject: seed development


When striving to produce seed on a certain pod plant after making one or
two (or more) crosses, do you, as a matter of practice, remove all other
flowers and/or extraneous OP pods?  The rationale would be to direct the
plant's energy to the development of these specific pods from which one
wants to save seed.
