Mamey Sapote seed viability
« on: October 12, 2019, 01:17:44 PM »
Just wondering how long Mamey Sapote seeds remain viable for as all my efforts to get viable seeds, here in Uganda, have not worked out.

Are they better shipped moist?

Any suggestions appreciated!

I would think moist would be better. I planted a seed soon after consuming the fruit (I believe it was a day or so after eating the fruit) and it did sprout within a month. Perhaps whoever sources your seeds could put some in moist vermiculite? Good luck!
