Viability of seeds from frozen fruit

(1/2) > >>

All the fruit on my Seville froze in December. Is it possible that the seeds inside the ruined fruit could be viable ?  The fruit was not fully ripe, still green when frozen to death.

Nick C:
I would say its a very slim chance

A 2-3week seed test at 86F should provide some answers. If the seeds have a hard seedcoat chances should be better.

What do yall think ? Worth cleaning these up and planting them?

There's not much to lose. I have planted immature Clementine seeds and got good germination. The biggest danger I foresee is susceptibility to decay, especially with the adhering flesh.
