Stratification Refrigerated Stratification Stratification is accomplished by placing seeds in moist planting medium in a cold environment (2 weeks to 3 months). Seeds require moisture, cold and oxygen. In general, this period of time allows an undeveloped embryo to mature.

Stratification Outdoor Stratification Seeds are kept outdoors through the winter in lined pits or raised beds. Must be protected from freezing, drying and rodent predation (use wire netting in the soil). Pits or beds are layered with clean sand, medium with seeds, more clean sand, etc.

FRUITS DEVELOPMENT

Fruit Development Fruit is a mature of ripen ovary formed after fertilization After double fertilization ovary developed into fruit and ovule form seeds. A fruit may contain one or more seeds. Fruit provide protection for the enclosed seeds. During fruit development, the wall of ovary becomes pericarp , the thickened wall of fruit. The fruit usually ripens about the same as its seed are completing their development. Parthenocarpic fruit is the formation without fertilization ovary and it is seedless. This occurs in plant species that have many ovules in their ovary such as banana.

From ovary to fruit The ovary of the flower contains the ovules. As fertilized ovules develop into seeds, the ovary wall develops into the fruit. The term “fruit” refers to a mature ovary that contains seeds .

Parts of fruit The three fruit layers are: Exocarp: the outermost layer often consisting of only the epidermis Mesocarp: or middle layer , which varies in thickness Endocarp: which shows considerable variation from one species to another

Types of fruits A. Simple fruit develops from a single ovary of a single flower ; may be either dry or fleshy when mature 1. Simple fleshy fruits a) Berry entire fruit wall is soft and fleshy at maturity Eg: grapes and tomatoes) b) Drupe outer part of fruit wall is soft and fleshy, inner part is hard and stony Eg: coconut and peach c) Capsule dry at maturity and splits open along several seams Eg: okra (ladies fingers)

2. Simple dry fruits a) Legume dry at maturity and splits open along two seams Eg: peas, beans b) Grain dry at maturity; contains single seed; seed coat is fused to fruit wall Eg: corn, wheat, rice c) Nut single-seeded fruit in which the ovary wall and seed coat remain separate Eg: chestnut, walnut Types of fruits
