The Video shows how to remove the gelatinous coating of Bitter Melon seeds. Part of Fall season gardening activities is gathering seeds for next planting season. Some seeds are easier to collect than others as they come out dry but most of them are coated with some gooey substance that has to be removed from the seeds. One of these seeds is the Bitter Melon seed. Each seed is coated with a brightly red gelatinous substance. I surmise that this substance attracts ants which eat the sweet, mushy substance but leave the seeds alone and usually some of the seeds will sprout in the the coming year but very late in the season so it is best to collect the seeds instead of leaving them in the ground. The seeds need to be cleaned and air dried at room temperature so so that mildew or fungus will not harm it. When they are very dry they can be wrapped in dry paper towel then placed in a plastic bag.
