before seed dispersal takes place, can affect seed quality ( Valencia-Díaz and Montaña, 2005 ). This phenomenon is known as the maternal effect ( Valencia-Díaz and Montaña, 2005 ). Characteristics of the seed that can be affected by maternal plant stress

the assessment of seed quality and hence value to the producer and the amount purchased by the end user. Seed quality of prevariety germplasm of native species is based on two percentages—purity (by weight) and viability—which are used to calculate the

, when humidity shows a diurnal increase. Storage conditions are another issue associated with seed moisture content and seed quality. For instance, using cold airflow cabinets at 20 °C and 35% relative humidity will keep the seed at an optimum moisture

larger and darker fruit. For some species, seed quality traits such as weight, longevity, and leachate are poor when maternal plants are grown under high temperatures during seed development, but viability is unaffected ( Li et al. 2017 ). Although we did
