AbstractResearches the germination and propagation of Vaccinium arboreum. Cold stratification for 2-6 weeks increased germination. However, seeds stratified in dark, moist sand for 156 days produced etiolated seedlings that generally died after transplantation. Seedlings survived well if not overwatered. Seedlings of this species can be grown in sufficient quantities for commercial utilization although germination percentage greater than 50 percent is not common.
