Raifu's saved seed list

This post was updated on .
Here's my list of saved and zapped seeds. This does not include my store-bought seeds, nor does it include seeds I've received in trades and free offers. Please read the notes before requesting a trade or such. This list was last updated on 21 June 2019. I have yet to add the seeds I've saved in 2019 (but I've saved seeds from most of the things I grew).

Notes:
• All the seeds mentioned in this file were zapped in water with such as a Z4EX zapper (normally at least 15 minutes with each of the three frequencies). Since I didn't start zapping seeds much until 2016 (I zapped some in 2015, although I don't know if I have those seeds anymore), most of these seeds are from 2016 and beyond.
• Some seeds were experimentally frozen in the fruit before they were zapped and dried (those and some others are marked 'frozen'). They may not be viable (the frozen Brandy Boy cross seeds I planted did not sprout).
• There are loads of most watermelon and muskmelon seeds
• Most of the watermelon seeds came from plants whose foliage had something like anthracnose (while the fruits that I saved seeds from were all asymptomatic other than some having a stonewashed look on the surface of the rind skin, and from those I didn't save fruits some, either all or most were asymptomatic; there were one or two fruits in 2016 that either had anthracnose or blossom end rot, but I couldn't tell which it was, and I didn't save seeds from those fruits); I'm not sure if the zapping would killed the pathogen or not if present (as our watermelon foliage has historically gotten it anyway, and symptoms don't show up until later in the season; however, zapped Porter tomato seeds that came from fruits with anthracnose did not grow into plants with any symptoms of anthracnose in my garden), and zapped seeds from fruits with mild alternaria symptoms did not have the same symptoms.
• I did not bag blossoms or isolate plants. The likelihood of cross-pollination is high for watermelons, muskmelons, peppers, okra, tomatillos, squash, and maybe other things. The cross-pollination rate for my saved tomato seeds seems to be about 5% to 14% in my experience. However, for some things, I only grew one of that species that year (so they should be pure): e.g. Aswad eggplant, wonderberry, Morelle De Balbis, West India Burr Gherkin, Shark Fin Melon, Giant Cape Gooseberry ground cherry (if it doesn't cross with other species), etc.
• The muskmelon seeds of 2017 (not other years) are of particular concern with regard to cross-pollination, since they might be crossed with Plum Granny (which isn't sweet) or Metki Dark Green Serpent (which is used like a cucumber, but it may or may not get sweet when fully ripe; however, a cross with it I tried in 2019 tasted sweet and really, really good!)
• The watermelons, muskmelons and Red-seeded Citron watermelon had black plastic in 2015, and were watered moderately early on, and little to none later on. The tomatoes had no black plastic in 2015, and were watered moderately. The plants were started indoors. There were some disease and pest issues for the plants generally. Some plants (again, in 2015) were in shaded raised beds (but most seeds didn't come from those).
• I heavily watered everything in 2016, and used no black plastic that year. Most plants were in the ground, but some were in raised beds in the shade, and some were in containers. Most of the peppers were in containers. Some of the ground cherries in 2016 (the ones that are of identified varieties) were grown in containers, as were some of the tomatillos. I started the seeds in an unheated greenhouse in mid-March.
• I gave everything drought conditions in 2017 and used no black plastic that year. Many tomatoes in 2017 had less-than-ideal conditions (they were crowded and the soil could have used some compost or such). Most of the peppers were in containers. I started the seeds in an unheated greenhouse later in March and/or early in April.
• I gave everything wherein I have seeds listed here drought conditions (watered only a few times) in 2018 and used black plastic for most things that year (not for the Morelle De Balbis or West India Burr Gherkins). Most of the peppers were in containers. I started the seeds in an unheated greenhouse. I think some in mid-March and some later.
• I have more seeds that I saved that aren't listed here, but they haven't been zapped. I have many store-bought seeds (those aren't listed here). Most of my unzapped seeds are from 2014 and 2015, but I also have Alexandria and Yellow Wonder alpine strawberry seeds from 2018 that haven't been zapped.
• %% means the ancestral seed, or the seed that I purchased, traded for, or was given, wasn't true to type.
• !! means I'm out of seeds.
• If the amount of seeds isn't mentioned somewhere in this document, that means that it isn't specified (it could be a large or small amount).
• The seeds in the mixed seeds section are also listed in their individual sections (they are marked as mixed there). You'll notice that they're from 2016 (I didn't continue to mix seeds in 2017 and 2018). By mixed seeds, I mean bags of seeds with multiple kinds of seeds in the same bag (which were zapped in water together).
• The dates usually represent the date that the seeds were zapped in water and set out to dry. The date of ripeness in some cases was considerably earlier (including for many of the seeds from purposefully frozen fruits).
• Germination rates are not guaranteed.
