I am in need of a good strategy to extract the earliest-possible batch of seeds from an upcoming batch of white pumpkins (I may have a few available within a month).
My main uncertainty is at what size a pumpkin needs to be before extracting seeds of any sort.
Beyond that, my plan is to do the following:
- Extract seeds from pumpkin
- Dry seeds for 1 day (2 of it is humid)
- Place seeds in freezer for 2 to 3 days
- Thaw seeds, begin germination process in a 85f, enclosed, lit greenhouse container
Is there anything noteworthy that I can do to encourage my pumpkins to provide viable seeds sooner than later?
