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).
