Does wet freezing kill temperate fruit-tree seeds?
I know many dried vegetable seeds can be frozen harmlessly.
I would guess that many tree seeds shed in fall in middle and northern latitudes get routinely frozen even if leaf-covered or slightly buried.
Still, I have never heard or read yea or nay from someone who knows from experience.
I am mainly interested about if frozen in the ripe fruit. If the fruit of an apple or persimmon or pear is frozen for storage (to eat in a recipe, obviously) will the seeds be viable at thawing and extraction?
