Yucca Seeds

carol5(5SEMI)July 29, 2007

My Yucca plants have bloomed for the first time since I planted them 3 yrs ago. Now that the flowers have finished there are what appears to be giant pods on the stalks. I wanted to include the seeds from these in a seed swap, but I want to be sure that I harvest them correctly, or if this is even viable?

Hi Carol,
Wait until the pods dry, i.e turn tan color. They will split on their own and expose rows of thin black seeds. It may be a good idea to wrap each pod with a square of nylon to prevent bugs from tunneling through the pods and the rows of seeds. I don't know if this will work, but it's worth a try.
Good luck
:-)

I love Yucca too, especially the bluish green with curly threads and the green and yellow stripes.
