Mocan Berries

    1 responses

Linton starts with ...
Mocan Fruit - Visnea mocanera - endangered species!

Recently I was sent a couple of the Mocan Seeds (Visnea mocanera) for planting. These fruit used to be eaten by the natives of the Canary Islands.

The problem is, according to the grower, they will not germinate if the temperature is higher than 17 deg C. Seeing as the temperatures here are much higher than that at the moment I think it would be best to store them and plant them in the cooler months.

It's probably a long shot but I would like to hear if anyone has experience with this species or of any opinions such as should these seeds be stored in the fridge over summer?

Thanks.

When it comes to seeds it is humidity and the formation of mold that is a problem. We use those silica gel packs inside a sealable air tight plastic bag and store in a cool dry place. In relation to the fridge many people opt for the freezer as they get less moisture in there and some fridges can be no good and quite humid but inside the bag will cancel this out.

In relation to the freezer a few seeds though won't be able to thaw out after being in the freezer.

So in summary to be safe just place them in an air tight plastic bag with no moisture and store in a cool dry place.

Good Luck, sounds like a very rare plant.
