I have harves ted some seeds I need to send off but I am afraid they will mold if I pack them in the usual plastic bag.
Do they need a long drying time? they appear to be more a soft berry than a seed.
If I pack them in a paper envelope will they be OK?

Any help , Ideas, or experience gladly appreciated

I'm no expert on harvesting seeds. I allow my seeds to dry for a while (appr. 3/4 weeks) in a paper bag. After they have dried for a while, I try to shake the bag to seperate k the seeds. Then I store them in a the crisper of the fridge.
