of symbiotic seed germination ( Dixon, 1987 ; Ramsay and Dixon, 2003 ) was used to prompt seed germination and development in vitro. Briefly, seeds were removed from cold storage, surface sterilized in a vial containing a solution of 5 mL 6.00% NaOCl

, the use of tissue culture techniques arose in plant breeding in an attempt to rescue certain genotypes that, in natural conditions, would not germinate. In the case of stone fruit, the seedcoat is traditionally removed because the seed isolation from
