What concentration of GA3 did you use?

I used 300 ppm, I believe that is what was recommended on the original thread. I might try 100 ppm on the Soncoya?

good to know.
i' m looking for the minimum concentration required to induce germination without having an etiolating effect on future seedlings

That’s awesome Ethan, please keep us updated on the progress of these seedlings. Frank and Raul got me very interested in Illama and I’m glad Raul’s seeds are being grown around the world.

What was the result on Soncoya seeds?

Raul has great stuff and is a good guy. I tried everything with the seeds to get good germination rates fron scraping them, refrigerating them and all concentrations of gibberellic acid. My 4 trees have fruit setting now but back to seeds.




Seeds from this red genova fruit were planted fresh and nearly all popped up without anything special being done. It did take over 6 months and stirring the soil and disturbing them seems to spring them into action.

what a beautiful fruit Mike!!  i'm wondering how it tastes  :P
How old are your trees?
So it might take 6 months for the seeds t ogerminate?
I don't think my patience can reach that time limit  ;D

They are native where the dry season is over 6 months long.  So the seeds are programmed to be dormant for 6-10 months.

I thought Yucatán is the driest region in Mexico? That’s good information I’ll plant some trees in my orchard there

There are much drier areas and even deserts closer to the US border.The trees drop lots of leaves in the dry season.

My Illama seed from JF germinated after I did not water the foam cup for about a month.
This might have simulated dry season dormancy.Once I started watering it again it sprouted.
