Thank you Sir for the help by explaining this process. I've been trying to figure out how to save some John Baer seeds for a couple of years now; they are getting harder and harder to find! Now my problem is solved. But, how do you save them until next year ? Do you freeze them? Or, just stash them away someplace? Thank you again. LC

Leave them out on a paper towel to dry once they are clean and store them in a paper packet or paper origami box. they will keep for a year or maybe several as long as they are died well after being fermented. The paper helps disperse any extra moisture. I like to make origami paper boxes using a template I designed that prints them out with seed labels already on them, but making a tiny paper envelope and labeling it with a marker is fine too. If you want the origami box template contact me. :)
