    I just got about 20 or so seeds from my friend who didn't want them. is there any way to tell whether or not they are male or female?

    if not, is there like an expiration date on the seeds if i just leave them in my drawer or something?

    Those green ones might not sprout, the brown seeds are usually more viable than green..

    I realize that this thread is pretty old but hopefully someone stumbles across this.

    I read somewhere before that a way to tell if a seed is male or female is after they have germinated.

    Apparently, if the sprout comes out of the top or bottom of the seed, it is a FEMALE.

    If the sprout comes out of either side of the seed, it is a MALE.

    I recently tried this out and I can confirm that it works. I germinated 5 seeds. 2 of them that I planted where sprouted out of the side (male) and the other 3 sprouted out of the top/bottom (female). Out of the 2 seeds that were potentially Male plants, 1 of them has shown sex and it is indeed a male. The other plant hasn't shown sex yet.

    Out of the other 3 plants that were potentially female, all 3 have shown sex and guess what, all 3 are Females!!!

    Having said that, this could all be a big coincidence. However, if this turns out to be a fact, then the world of growing has made a huge step forward!

    Any inputs would be greatly appreciated!!!

    the only way to really tell is to grow it.

    I think what there trying to say is female seeds tend to have a nice hole/indent at the end like most women should have lol
