    well, if you had asked me that a few months back, i would hve said look for the larger shineyer brown, uncracked ones.
    if its cracked or squashed then its bad.

    i would have said the pale/greish ones may not be good,

    however, i got some skywalkers from dutch passion, and to look at, i would say they deffo looked below average, small and pale....but they had 100% germination and grew into beasts, so there you go.

    seeds keep quite easy, aslong as they are kept away from moisture and reletivley cool, they will last.

    if you can crush them between your fingers, they were no good - even fresh seeds will probably float, so you can't go by that, but, MY personal method is to trash any seeds that refuse to sink after a 24-hour presoak - best way to store seeds is in the refrigerator - long-term freezing is permissible IF the seeds are DRY - nobody, repeat: nobody, can tell a male seed from a female seed - ideal temp for a plant is about 75 dgrees F, so few areas would support an outdoor grow in the Winter - besides, indoors has no cloudy days, no deer, moles, or bugs, etc
