Video: How to Harvest Seeds from Cactus Fruit

This is a macro video demonstrating how to remove the fruit and harvest the seeds from a cactus (Species is Mammillaria Haageana). This variety does bear edible fruit known as Chilitos, and I did taste it afterwards! A bit underripe, sour, no distinct flavors just yet..but not unpleasant!

Tools needed include something to cut the fruit and something to scrape out the seeds. Steady hands are ideal so don’t attempt this after a strong cup of coffee 😉 This was my first time doing this and it was a lot easier than I expected so give it a go yourself!

I will pot these up and report back as soon as I see any progress. Maybe 2 weeks? Maybe a month? Maybe never? Only one way to find out 😀
