Step 1: What You'll Need
fruit or vegetable
Step 2: Cut
make a vertical slice in the side of your plant
but only about half way through
Step 3: Pry
pull your plant apart at your cut, do this over your surface as seeds may fall out depending on your plant.
Step 4: Removing Seeds
gently scrape your seeds out of your plant with the tip of your knife onto a flat surface
Step 5: Seeds!
take your seeds and sort out any badly cut ones, these seeds have a low chance of sprouting so throw them into your garden or yard and let them decompose
Step 6: Transportation
scoop your seeds into a bag and transport them to your seed sprouter.
Step 7: Yum
slice up the "meat" of your plant and have a tasty snack.
Step 8: Drying
spread out your seeds on a flat surface, place in front of a window and let dry for about 24 hours
Step 9: Scarification
(optional) if you want to make your seeds sprout a little faster try this method,make a tiny cut on the edge of your seed this will allow water to get in and start things a little faster.
Step 10: Sprouting
place your seeds on a damp paper towel spread them out so they have room.
Step 11: Cover
cover your seeds i did mine in a butter dish with a clear top, but you can even use a plastic bag
Step 12: Let Them Grow
set your little baby's in front of some sunlight some of them may not sprout but thats ok, thats why plants have lots of seeds! when they get their first leaves that is when you are going to want to transfer them to a starter pot, if you want to see an inscrutable on this let be know in the comments.
