It doesn't have to be an exact number how many basil seeds can be harvested from one basil plant? Also, approx. how many basil seeds make up one pound? I'm sure there's a lot of variables, like variety, size, etc. but an estimate number would be appreciated. Also, the fungus forsythia in the seeds already? Thank you Louis

There would be no way to estimate the number of seeds produced from plants.
Seeds from healthy plants should be healthy if collected and stored properly.
