Plant them all.  About 40 seeds per 10" pot. Leave pots outside, be sure they never dry out. Them line out the strongest  seedlings until you have no room. then  keep rest of seedlings in pots.  Then plant out  best survivors of this group.

Don't bother with burrito method. That will only give you the ones that can germinate first.

I never know what kind of success rate I will have, so if I have blooms
& pollen available, & weather cooperates, I usually pollinate several
blooms in attempted crosses. I've had two or three pods from one cross
take now and then, more often lucky just to get one.

Both parents were apparently very fertile! So let's say it was more or
less an accident.
