Abstract

Small rock tumblers can be used to clean and condition seeds both in an aqueous and a dry mode. During the process, grit and gravel remove fruit pulp and abrade seed coats. Wet tumbling of seed aids imbibition, leaches water-soluble germination inhibitors, and may partially substitute for cold stratification for some shrub seed lots.
