    Saving Seeds/Propagation Earlier fruits contain more viable seeds. Allow fruits to fully ripen before scooping out the seeds and pulp into a container. Add just enough water to make fluid, then let them ferment for 5-10 days at room temperature. To separate seeds from pulp, add water and allow seeds to sink to the bottom. Pour off the floating pulp and inviable seeds. Repeat until clean. Dry for 15-30 days depending on conditions.
