Abstract

Fresh fruits were stored for various daylengths or under various light treatments for nine days. Seeds were then separated from the fruits and imbibed in 20°C in white light. After seven days imbibition, seeds from fruits stored in 15 h daylength had highest germination, while those from 8 h gave lowest germination. The lower the amount of photoreversible phytochrome in the seeds, as after storage in red light, the poorer the light germination. This is the opposite to storage in dark or far-red light. -from Author
