124. I wouldn't try to salvage the seeds.....
...from ANY produce you find in a supermarket.
They are generally from hybrid stocks that won't produce a good 2ng generation crop...
they have been irradiated to increase the shelf life.

If you are going to grow your own, look for heirloom seeds from a local heirloom vendor. Your seeds will be localized to you soil and climate, and will have been bred for taste and nutrition, NOT thick skins and long shelf life
If you have a neighbor who grows organic produce, you may get free seeds for the asking.
It is worth the effort and the few extra pennies.

The produce you find in a supermarket is inferior, and so are the seeds.
