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

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.
