How to Grow

How to grow video guide
Collect seed

Melon seeds grow inside the fleshy fruit.

Wait until the fruits are fully ripe and separated from the vine before collecting seeds from melons.

In cantaloupe, for example, look for thick netting and a pungent melon smell from the stem end.

To start saving melon seeds, cut open the fruit lengthwise and scoop out the seed masses into a jar.

Add a little warm water and allow the mixture to sit for two to four days, stirring daily.

As the melon seeds sit in water, they ferment.

During this process, the good seeds sink to the bottom of the jar while the detritus floats to the top.

To collect seeds from melons, pour off the water containing the pulp and bad seeds.

Spread the good seeds out on a paper towel or a screen.

Allow them to dry for several days.

Storing melon seeds that are not completely dry results in moldy seeds.

Once the seeds are very dry, place them in a clean, dry glass jar.

Write the seed variety and the date on a label and tape it to the jar.

Put the jar in the freezer for two days, and then move to the refrigerator.
