i always squeeze the seeds for before planting, pretty hard too...if they have any give (hollow feeling) they're worthless.

soak seed for 24 hrs with clean water changes every 8 hours. Seeds will float if dry but after soaking should sink.   A quick dip in a fungicide wouldn't hurt either before planting.  Plant in sterile growing medium. a commercial seed starting mix with peat in perlite works fine.

I did the same thing.. i hope the rest will eventually sprout

What my dad does with the sugar apple seeds is to test its buoyancy. If the seeds are buoyant, then it won't germinate.

Great, they all float...and they are the most expensive seed I’ve ever bought...ouch!  I’ll try anyway and keep you all posted.  Thank you.







The floating Chewy Red Sugar Apple seeds have germinated the sinking seeds have not.  Yey, I really love the Chewy Sugar Apples.

The sinking Na Dai seeds have now also germinated.  So both floating and sinking sugar Apple seeds are viable.

I have also found the float test to be worthless. I do the squeeze test like adam.

I got one of six to germinate.  Still waiting for others.  Soaked 24 hours then planted in Perlite/peat with bottom heat.  I still want to graft a scion to get true to type when they become available in the Spring.  (Please hold one for me Luke.)

Follow-up.  The one seedling that sprouted dampened off and died.  Still no other seeds have sprouted.  This is strange as I have planted many Annonas before and usually get high rates of germination.  I have many 1-2 year old seedlings ready to be grafted onto.  I hope I can get a scion from you Luke when they become available.
