Effect of dehydration on the germination of Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn) seeds

Effect of dehydration on the germination of Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn) seeds

Proceedings of the Interamerican Society for Tropical Horticulture 45: 31-33

Lychee seeds 'Brewster' were obtained from completely ripe fruit, and their moisture content determined. A group was left unwrapped at room temperature in the laboratory for 3, 5 and 7 days, stored in a cold chamber at 10 degrees C in thin polyethylene bags, or forced to lose 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60% moisture. All the seed were sown between 2 layers of moist paper towel and inspected periodically to evaluate germination percentage by radicle emergence.
