And boy am I getting some funny looks (getting them from parking lots of stores I'm shopping at and the YMCAs I go to).
But am I taking them too early if they aren't dried and/or brown? They are nothing fancy, just some nice yellow ones that all the strip malls have planted around here, but all the pods are either blown and empty, or green. I have opened some of the green ones - some partially opened and some not open at all - and they all have shiny black seed
Anybody know if it makes a difference in germination (after cold stratification) whether they were harvested from dried pod or green?
And are these swap-worthy, or no?
Thanks in advance for words of wisdom.
