Endocarp Removal Enhances Butia capitata (Mart.) Becc. (Pindo Palm) Seed Germination

in HortTechnology

Germination rate was significantly improved by removing the thick, hard endocarp from Butia capitata (pindo palm) fruit. Time to 50% of final germination rate was not affected by endocarp removal. Afterripening storage did not improve germination rate or time. Germination at 104 °F (40 °C) was superior to that at 93 °F (34 °C).
