I've a few of the double purple dats. They made many seedpods. I'd like to harvest them before they're brown and burst open and release the seeds every where. Also, I'd like to conserve some energy to some of these healthy looking branches so I can explore its cutting potential. When the bumpy prominents on the seedpod smooth out, are they ripened enough to be picked? Any advices would be greatly appreciated.
