Extracting Seeds From Chillies

If you are able to resist eating all the chillies that you grow, then you can harvest chilli seeds from your own plants and have seeds to start your next crop of plants come Spring.

It is critical to wait till the pods are ripe, then you can cut them open and scrape out the seeds, placing them so they are in a dry and sunny spot. Once they are dry, you should pack them away for use next year, seeds can last for approximately four to five years if stored in a cool dry place.
