Studies were made to determine the optimum germination temperature, depth of dormancy, and storability of non-dormant, prechilled Malus trilobata seeds from three altitudinal provenances (Kadirli, Önsen, and Bertiz) in the Eastern Mediterranean region of Turkey. The optimum germination temperature (based on seed germination percentage and speed) was 18°C and the seeds required about 12 weeks prechilling to break full dormancy. Germination of non-dormant, prechilled seeds, 7.5% moisture content, decreased by about 24% after 1 year of storage at 3°C.
