Conservación de semillas de frutos frescos para uso propio

Principios generales para conservación de semillas que maduran en frutos frescos: Evita o minimiza polinización cruzada aislándola de otras variedades de su especie. La fermentación ayuda a reducir el riesgo de enfermedades, separar las semillas de la pulpa, y puede incrementar la tasa de germinación. La fermentación excesiva puede causar germinación o pudrición. Tapa para que no entren insectos. Las semillas maduras (excepto la sandía), una vez separadas de la pulpa, generalmente se hunden en agua, facilitando que se enjuagen. Después de enjuagarlas, sécalas bien. Protégelas de roedores en el almacenamiento. -Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
