May yet sow the extra two seeds that I held back to pass onto others.
They look fine, even the bent one. Give it a little time to get the upper piece a bit longer, then just sever it from the lower part, and plant it. Keep very moist for a few days. It will take and become a fine plant.

Cute seedlings
I’d let them be at this stage and see how they do, the bent one may straighten up yet on its own.
By all means plant them all if you wish, you’ll be able to get a lot of seed from your fruit later on.
Will you be putting them in pots or in ground later on

Karen, they will all go in the ground here, simply do not have the time in our summer heat to do pots. Will probably plant one in the grey soil and one in our local silt. The one I will pass onto my parents will wind up in a totally different soil type again, although I do have a small amount of that red soil in the bed in the photo in my Garden of Woz thread.

As you suggested ladies, the bent one has straightened up

You are an optimist. I would've kept 2 seeds back in case of a catastrophe.

No real pests here to worry about Marsha. The beauty of growing on what was farmland and swamp, nowhere for pests to hide and if they were to dig holes they would be flooded out as currently water-table is roughly level with the surface of the ground

I was referring to weather events.

Weather not to bad from now on. Have a number of small greenhouses that are up against the walls of the house protecting the seedlings from frost. The frost that we had several weeks back didn't upset them at all and I am not expecting anything harder than those. Likewise rain and wind are not to bad from now on. Some of those that I am planning on passing a seedling on to are more protected than we are.

That sounds ideal.
