- ... Cryopreservation of papaya seeds is recommended because these seeds, although tolerant to desiccation, cannot be stored for long-term at the low temperatures of standard seed banks (i.e., seeds are classified as “intermediate”). Cryopreservation is a method of germplasm conservation using liquid nitrogen. This study aimed to compare the viability of seeds with and without mesotesta after being sto ...
