ripening hips

Although all of my hips are green and howing no colour several are showing what appear to be seeds at the top of the hp. Thaey can be reddisg or with no particular colour. Should I remove the seeds now and stratify them or wait until the hips become red or orange?

Leave it alone…

The seeds outside the hip do equally well as seeds inside the hip.

One really good seedling I just saw a few minutes ago was an “outtie”. It’s an Cologne X Constance Spry…

Enrique is right, though if you live in a very sunny area, like the desert southwest as I do, the sun can burn the exogenous seeds and they will lose their viability.
