Medium-term conservation of mature embryos of coconut

Abstract

Optimal conditions for the medium-term conservation of zygotic embryos of coconut were developed. After 6 months of storage on a medium devoid of sucrose and containing 2 g l−1 activated charcoal, 100% of the embryos developed into whole plantlets within 5 months after transfer to the recovery medium. After a 12-month storage period on medium containing 15 g l−1 sucrose and devoid of activated charcoal, 51% of the embryos germinated within 2 months after transfer to the recovery medium.
