In this post I'll teach you the procedure I followed to easily germinate apple seeds at home. You can also try apple seed germination, pineapple seed germination, tomato seed germination, cotton seed germination, finally lemon seed germination and now ginger germination. More to come next spring!

Four steps to go.
  1. Get the seeds.
  2. Let them dry.
  3. Chill them.
  4. Get them wet and warm enough to grow.
The first is perhaps the harder step. I grated the outside of a few strawberries with a knife, getting a little pulp and a few seeds, but then I had to remove the pulp, which is harder than it sounds. Some sites suggest you can process the berries with a shredder and water just a few seconds. The process should not damage the seeds (or at least, not all). Any way you want, get a few seeds.

After that, let them dry overnight, and move them in the refrigerator for a few days or a week. The more the better.

For the last step I put my seeds in a small transparent plastic container, with a little soil and a few drops of water, and covered the pot with transparent film. After 14 days, two seeds (out of 5 or 6) had grown into seedlings. But in 10 days one of them had already shown its leaves. Now, let's see how they grow.

Update: Showing leaves
