Harvesting and Growing from Seed:
Seed Pod The seedpod is pointed, opening into three sections, with the seeds neatly arranged
on each part. When the seeds are released, the sides of each part close together.
Seed The seeds are fat purple-brown drops. There are many seeds in a seedpod.
Seedling The seedleaves are rounded. The first true leaves are heart-shaped.
