Why Clearn Beauty Berry Bush Seeds

I have a question, why is it necessary to clean beauty berry bush seeds. The fruit around the seeds make for easier planting and never have been a problem. They do not need any special care and produce healthy plants every-time.

I don't clean them either-nor does nature.

yes this is true for most fruit, and many other seeds, it seems to work great without being cleaned.

i theorize that the seedlings like the extra sugars and material they naturally surround themselves with...it just makes sense that the seeds LIKE the fruit around them which is why they grow that way =)

but to trade them it seems good to dry them extra dry and get off most of the fruit...but a little bit here and there of the dried fruit seems ok, even if people dont neccessarily recognize this...thinking the seed should be totally clean.

even a little bit of funk, like the plant material rotting around the seeds, seems ok and seeming beneficial for the seedling...but of course to trade them they need to be sterile somewhat and not have funks...so most people probably wouldnt agree tho i believe this is true...
