To determine seed viability (germination).

Take a paper towel and run it under water then ring it out. Place 3 to 4 seeds in the paper towel and place them in a plastic bag. Keep the bag open to allow air. Place the bag in a warm spot in your house, such as on top of a refrigerator or clothes dryer. You can also use a heating pad, set on very low. In a few days the seeds should sprout.

These seeds are viable and will germinate.
