Hi,

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are asking when you say "harvest". It appears from the articles I have found that you can grow them indoors. But I haven't found anything about harvesting the seeds, or how to start new plants. Is that the information you are looking for?

Arabian Jasmine grows well in containers or in the ground, with a warm, lightly-shaded, humid spot preferred. Its light-green glossy foliage is handsome all year – plants may be trained to be shrubby or to climb a small trellis. Cut flowers will last at least a day out of water, and so make a nice table arrangement in a basket or even as exotic boutonnieres. Cutting-grown forms in cultivation locally are the single ‘Maid of Orleans’, the semi-double ‘Bel of India’, the fully double ‘Hawaiian Queen’, and the crested double ‘Grand Duke of Tuscany’. The first three are shrubby and somewhat scandent; “Grand Duke” is stiffly upright, more heat-loving, and less cold-tolerant.

The "Grand Duke of Tuscany" appears to be the one that is called the "Morga" flower. From what I have seen on my search these appear to have an aroma that is awesome. I think I may add it to my wishlist. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

I didn't find any seeds for sale. But this nursery ships the plant worldwide so maybe...

Grand Duke of Tuscany

This flower certainly has alot of culture and history behind it. I enjoyed reading some of the information. From my reading it seems that it has a very strong fragrance and only one vine will perfume a room. Maybe if you are successful and get some seeds from your plant we can trade different seeds next year.
