In the last week of January I pollinated “Galactic Storm” using the chimera African violet “Neptune Jewels” . After three weeks it was obvious that the cross took as was evident from the picture I took in February a few weeks after the cross. Click here to see that posting It has been almost 5 months now since the cross was made.
The image below is the exact same pod 5 1/2 months later. If you notice the pod is larger but I noticed a slight darkening (browning) of the pod and the stem which is indicative that it is nearly done and is fully mature and nearly ripe. I will wait until the pod browns and starts to dry out then harvest the seeds.
