When to harvest seeds from a Vitex (Chaste Tree)?

12 years ago

Hi everyone. I'm trying to save seeds from two Vitex Agnus-Castus trees. The seeds initially formed on the trees in August, and I've been waiting for them to mature and dry out ever since. The seeds themselves have turned brown, but the stems on the seed heads still look green, and the seeds are not coming off easily yet.

When is the best time to harvest them? I've never attempted this before, so I'm not really sure how long to wait.
