I got Twin in Rocoto Container

This is Rocoto De Seda one of my best seedlings. I am not talking about the Rocoto but the little one.

I have bought some organic apple and one of them had already sprouted seed inside. The apple was fresh, nothing wrong. I have seen this before but I never thought to plant it. This time I sowed it in the Rocoto De Seda container. I did not expect it will grow, but today I found like this, still it has the seed case. I do not know the roots under the soil.

Sorry for posting in the chili forum.

Yeah that's cool and strange, looks to be one seed with two tap roots. Wonder if they are fused together further up or you got a two for one. Once the seed shell drops pics again.

Keep us updated :-)


RE: I got Twin in Rocoto Container

I had several seeds from commercial Manzano seeds sprout 2 roots then have 2 separate tops when the shell dropped off this season.
It looked like I was going to get a double rooted plant but it ended up that I got 2,twin plants from 1 seed.
It never happened before until this year.
All seeds were from commercially grown Yellow,orange/Yellow or orange pods.
Maybe commercial pods are some kind of Hybrid...RocotoX or color X.
I don't know.
Won't know until I grow F2 or older plants from isolated seeds in years to come.

One is free from the seedcase:

RE: I got Twin in Rocoto Container

Several seeds have more than 1 embryo per seed.
Limes are one I can think of offhand.
I think apples might have more than 1 embryo too,I'm not positive.

The baby twin Manzano sprouts are doing Ok so far.
