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 Iíve ever bought...ouch!  Iíll 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.
