Abstract / Synopsis

Excised embryos of Veitchia and Howea palm seeds can successfully be cryopreserved after desiccating them to a moisture content of around 10%. It was observed that the haustorium in cryopreserved embryos failed to develop, while in the non-cryopreserved embryos at 10% moisture content, the haustorium developed normally. In both cases, plant development appeared normal in culture.
