Asimina triloba - Paw Paw - seed viability

mrgpagOctober 1, 2009

recently harvest a bunch of fruit and extracted and cleaned the seeds this morning. The somewhat standard float test however was disappointing as all floated - usually a sign the seed isn't viable. I germinated a bunch of seed this last spring, but others cleaned the seed and I don't know if they used the float test or not.

I cut open several seeds and they looked good on the inside -

any thoughts on this??

Thanks

Marshall
