    mine have to seed themselves Joseph. But you can let them dry on the plant at the end of the season then harvest and store somewhere dry. In a paper bag or envelope, not plastic. they sweat and rot.

    sow in spring, when the frosts are done

  • They seed themselves in my garden as well.... I have an ace recepie to pickle them and they are a bit like capers!!!

    do you do flower buds or green seeds for the caper effect stacey? I've never done that I just eat bit straight off the plant

    I just have a jar of pickling vinegar waiting in the kitchen and as the seeds develop to the size of small peas I pick them and pop them in image
