Step 1: What You'll Need

knife
cutting board
fruit or vegetable
container
water
paper towl,newspaper,etc.

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. (Thanks for making it to the end).
