Yes, some time ago.
I found they did better if they fell on the soil from plants in the summer - so I reckon they do best with a bit of weathering to break down the seed coat. The first year I sowed them they took several weeks to germinate, until I'd almost forgotten about them.
Personally, didn't enjoy them for eating purposes, although others did - it was 50/50. Give them a go, anything new to grow is fun.
