Cryopreservation of tea (Camellia sinensis L.) seeds and embryonic axes


Cryopreservation of tea (Camellia sinensis L.) seeds and embryonic axes



Cryo Letters 23(4): 209-216



ISSN/ISBN: 0143-2044

PMID: 12391481

This study investigated the tolerance to desiccation and freezing of tea seeds, embryonic axes (EAs) and cotyledonary embryonic axes (CEAs, consisting of EAs with portions of cotyledons still attached). No seeds germinated after desiccation and cryopreservation. EAs extracted from seeds desiccated to 18.9% moisture content (fresh weight basis) and cryopreserved showed 20.7% survival but plantlet production from these EAs was impossible.
