Germinating Strawberry seeds- Geant Framboise 1962

Hello, this year I received 25 seeds of open pollinated “Geant framboise” or Giant Framboise that was sourced in France in 1962. Hoping for some tips on germinating these seeds.

Also received runners of “Parker” and “Saint Williams” both about 40 years old!

Any advice on how to handle these seeds? I assume they have been in cold storage since they came from U.S. National Plant Germplasm System. I want to try to germ have and put the other in cold storage in case they do need it.


id put them in coir and keep moist on a heat mat. i did that this spring and got 90% germ. rate with alpine strawberry seeds.good luck!
