Seed collecting (Brassica)

Hi

I’ve left my Kalette plants to go to seed.
Can I harvest the seeds for sowing?
I know with some plant groups you have to be careful of cross-pollination.

Thank you

Hi!

I understand that brassicas DO across pollinate :slightly_frowning_face:

You could try to see what you got, for fun, but if you have any other brassica family members, it may not come “true” from the plant it is from.

I would give them a try. You may get kalettes or something new! After all, that’s how kalettes came to be :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Unless you have other brassicas flowering near them at the same time. They should be fine.

Brassicas won’t cross into anything dangerous.

Thanks Jack.
I’m happy to give it a shot since there’s no risk of a ‘dangerous’ cross.
They were next to Cavelo Nero. So maybe I’ll get … Cavaloettes :sweat_smile:

They would be in high demand!
