The effect of scarification on seed germination in the succulent halophyte, Halosarcia pergranulata subsp. pergranulata, was studied. H. pergranulata subsp. pergranulata was found to have a partial physical dormancy attributable to the testa, a phenomenon rare among halophytes. Dormancy was alleviated by scarification of the testa. This was most effective where it occurred near the radicle. Incidental coverage of the micropyle by the hilum in some seeds did not affect germinability.
