How To Regrow Fruit From Seeds
Watch how it's done here:
Small pots, mason jars or cups
All-purpose or seed-starting soil
Greenhouse option 1: empty plastic bottle
Greenhouse option 2: plastic wrap
1. Slice citrus in half and remove seeds.
2. Rinse seeds off so no fruit is left on them, but do not dry
3. Fill a container ¾ of the way with all-purpose or seed-starting soil and place seeds onto the soil.
4. Top off container with soil and spray with water to moisten.
5. Carefully cut off the bottom of an empty plastic bottle to create a greenhouse that keeps the soil humid. Place on top of your pot.
6. Keep seeds in a warm place, like on top of a refrigerator or near a water heater.
7. Keep soil moist and wat for seeds to sprout!
1. Remove seeds from strawberry with a toothpick.
2. Rinse the seeds off so no fruit is left on them then let them dry off completely.
3. Fill a container ¾ of the way with all-purpose or seed-starting soil and place seeds onto it. (For drainage, you can place a handful of pebbles at the bottom of the container.)
4. Top off the container with soil and spray with water.
5. Leave seeds in sunlight and watch for seeds to sprout, misting with water every other day.
6. Transfer to a larger pot or outside once sprouts grow their third leaves.
1. Slice kiwi and remove seeds with a spoon.
2. Using a small strainer, rinse the seeds until no pulp is left on them, then allow dry until completely dry.
3. Fold seeds into a paper towel, then place inside a container with a lid. (Or place into moist perlite in a sealable bag)
4. Spray the paper towel with water to moisten, close the container and refrigerate for 4 months, spray occasionally to keep moist. (This period of exposure to the cold is called “after ripening.”)
5. Transfer seeds to a container filled ¾ of the way with soil. Top off the container with soil and mist with water.
6. Cover the container with plastic wrap to keep it humid and place in a warm, sunny spot.
7. Watch for the seeds to sprout and when they’re large enough, replant outside near a wall or trellis they can climb!
1. Remove seeds from raspberry with a toothpick or by mashing it through a small strainer.
2. Rinse the seeds off so no fruit is left on them then let them dry completely.
3. Fill a container ¾ of the way with all-purpose or seed-starting soil and place the seeds into it.
4. Cover seeds with ¼ inch of soil and spray with water.
5. You can cover with plastic wrap or the bottom of a plastic bottle to keep humid, or spray regularly to keep soil moist.
6. Keep in a cool, well ventilated space.
7. Transfer to soil once sprouts grow their third leaves.
Cherries, Pears and Apples
1. Remove the seeds, rinse and dry them.
2. Wrap in a moist paper towel and store in a closed container in the refrigerator until sprouted. (This period of exposure to the cold is called “after ripening.”)
3. Keep seeds moist.
4. Once they’ve sprouted 2-4 leaves, plant in pots.
5. Once they’re large enough, transfer outdoors.
