Q.I have a question about storing cherry seeds

Zone 59920 | Anonymous added on August 24, 2020 | Answered

I just pitted a bunch of cherries and want to store the seeds for later use. I washed them and am now drying them, but I do not want to plant them right away. Maybe not for a couple years. Can I forgo the cold period and just store them in jars until I am ready to actually use them?
