Canarina Seeds

Perhaps this fruit should be treated like a tomato that is used for seeds.

'Ferment' it in water, carefully pouring off the pulp and water each day
that becomes loose.

Keep repeating until only the seed is left. Dry the seed on a paper coffee
filter so it does not stick.

I've not done this with Canarina fruits but it works great for tomatoes.

I got around to looking at the fruit from my passiflora caerulea (blue 
passion flower) yesterday - a lot of seed, covered in sticky material. 
It is said to be important to remove this because it inhibits germination.

I put them in a sieve and ran water over them, and generally messed 
about ineffectively.

Getting to the question which my be relevant, is there some substance 
which digests this kind of material?
