Do I need to clean jaboticaba seed before planting?
« on: April 19, 2024, 07:01:44 PM »
Just got my order of red jaboticabas from flying fox fruits along with some peluche loquat seeds.

Do I need to clean the extra pulp off of the jaboticaba seeds prior to planting or can I just put them directly in soil right out of the fruit?

Leaving a little flesh is fine, but the more you leave on, the more chance of mold. For small batches,
I'll scrape off as much flesh as I can with my front teeth, no washing machine necessary. Did the entire
taproot come off? If so, that one might be a goner. Some loquats are polyembryonic. I'm not sure if they
produce multiple taproots, but give it a shot

Yes, the entire taproot came off, but I planted it anyway. We’ll see what happens🤞

I tried to clean as much pulp off as I could while I was eating the red jabos.
Some had more than others.
