Preserving Lemon Seeds

Zone Tropical zone. - Ugaanda | Asupasa Isiko wilson added on January 4, 2015 | Answered

I need to know how to preserve the seeds because lemon is only available now. So I can only get seed now and preserve for the future but I need to wait until the rains start in March.

Select the largest seeds, place them on a damp paper towel, wrap it up, and store in a plastic bag. You should be able to keep them in the frig for several months. Check them occasionally to make sure they don't dry out. There is a bit of disagreement about whether the seeds should dry or not before planting. I think I would dry some, and keep some damp, and see which germinate better.
