How to Save Seeds

 

Cucumbers will cross pollinate readily with other cucumber varieties therefore be sure to separate by at least ¼ of a mile or so for seed purity. They should remain on vine well past the eating stage, often the cuke will turn white. Once ready to cut off the vine simply snipe them off with scissors and them set aside to cure for 20 days before harvesting seeds from the center. Simply cut vertically scoop out seeds and pulp into a mason jar of water for fermenting. Then seal jar with a lid and place in and warm place out of direct sunlight. After 5 to 7 days of fermenting pour out seeds floating on top of the water along with mold and then pour rest of the good seeds, on the bottom, over a fine mess strainer to catch them. Dry well in fine mesh or paper towels but turn often so they don't stick to paper.
