Yucca Seeds

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?

RE: Yucca Seeds

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.
