Hi all, 

A teacher ed colleague was doing a project on fruit with students. When they cut the pumpkins open they noticed that seeds were already germinating. They are wondering what might cause this and how common it is for seeds to germinate inside fruit. 

Ideas? Resources I can point them to? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
