Saving seeds from all sources

Asked September 2, 2018, 1:19 PM EDT

After using a lemon and orange for cooking, I chose to save all the seeds. I thought maybe I could grow my own plants and maybe even share the plants with others to propagate free food. After removing seeds, what are steps to cure seeds for later germination. How can I determine which seeds may grow?

Thank you for your question. Here is an article which should help answer it, including some tips on seed "cure." It is impossible to say which seeds will grow until you have followed these tips, and learned whether the treatment they have received has an impact on their viability: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/citrus-seed-harvesting.htm

Good luck!
