George Redei mentioned in his Bibliographia Genetica 21:1-151 (1969) monograph
on Arabidopsis that the seed of the race Hau fails to germinate for several
months after harvest. Is there anyone out there who has used Hau recently who
can confirm this characteristic? Also, does anyone know of races other than
Hau which show an extended dry afterripening requirement for germination?
