The goal of this research was to study the effect of exogenous application of [GA.sub.3], mechanical scarification and KN[O.sub.3] on the germination of seeds of yellow passion fruit and sweet granadilla under controlled conditions of light and temperature.
The fruits of two accessions of sweet granadilla named PrJ1 and PrJ2 were collected in the municipality of Palestina, Huila province (Colombia) in a farm located at 1,807 m.a.s.l.
In Crop Physiology Laboratory of the Faculty of Agronomy, National University of Colombia, Bogota campus, the best concentration of KN[O.sub.3] was determined for treating the seeds of sweet granadilla, than these were placed to germinate in Petri dishes on filter paper in germination chambers Sanyo LMR-351 (Japan), at 30/20[degrees]C (12 h/12 h), 85% RH in complete darkness.
In a preliminary experiment (data not shown) with sweet granadilla seeds germinated on filter paper, the treatments with best results in the germination of this species were: [GA.sub.3] (50, 100, 200 and 400 mg [L.sup.-1]) and removing of basal point of seeds (RB).
