How to germinate Cydonia oblonga seeds:
Soak seed 12 hours then sow 2-3 cm deep in compost rich medium. Tamp firm. Keep moist. Cold stratify for 90-120 days then expose to Spring like conditions (20 C) to germinate. Quick growing seedlings will be ready to plant out the same Autumn. Can be used as a pear rootstock in its second or third year. Cydonia seed is always en-capsuled in a very slippery mucilage. We try to remove this when cleaning.
