I check Charlie every day or two and see how he is doing. Today I noticed a few small fissures on the top. I gently touched the top and felt only soft rot... darn. So I got my knife and went on a seed salvage. There was a lot of mold and water in the seed cavity . I suspect this is a result of the crack that developed in the stem end. There were not a lot of seeds , many were rotten but I did salvage some.
