TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

Germinating seeds


Though germinating fruit seeds is commonly frowned upon as risky, especially in a survival situation, it's better to have a hybrid species that's less than 100% the same as it's parent tree than to have nothing at all!

An apple tree grown from seed, for instance, may vary from the apple it was taken from, but it's quite possible and future fruits may yield seeds that not only produce fruits as superior as the original, for all you know they could be even better.

HOW to germinate certain seeds, however, can be difficult or at least tricky.

Fruit seeds and how to germinate them


Wikipedia on olives: "the oily pericarp is first softened by slight rotting, or soaked in hot water or in an alkaline solution".

Cherimoya [i thought it was "chimoya"] are DEElicious!
From a forum: "I would soak the cherimoya seeds for a couple days and then put them in a ziplock bag with some barely damp peat-moss. They should sprout in month or two, with those which don't, a little more warmth might be needed then ambient house temps. I have had some where house temps sprout them all, but last year only half spouted, and the others sprouted once I had them outside in the summer heat in a ziplock, in a dark box under the patio roof; bury them 3/4 to 1 inch and firm up the soil."

"Mango is quite easy so long as your starting out with a fresh seed. You need to carefully remove the protective husk that protects the seed kernal and plant the seed in a well draining potting mix, hump side up with about 1/4 inch of the seed exposed above the soil line. Use a container that is fairly deep so as to provide enough room for the new forming tap root. Once you have done all this water them and let drain well and place in a warm area. Set it to around 80 degrees and withing a few weeks you should see a new tree sprouting. It is good to use "Honey" or other polyembryonic types because you have a greater chance of your new seedling being like the mother tree."

nuts from seed


--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
"Soak the seeds in water overnight. Soak lots of them as some may not germinate and some may get moldy.
Take a nut cracker and crack or split the nuts just so they open up a little (at the seam).
Plant the nuts in good quality soil on their sides with the seam up leaving some of the seed exposed.
Place containers holding seeds on a cookie sheet and place on top of a heating pad set on low or medium depending on how hot your heating pad gets.
Water and wait. Watch for mold. The soil may need to be sprayed with damp off every once in a while if mold appears. I heard that if you plant the seed as above, then place in the fridge for a few weeks prior to placing them in a warm spot (or like I did on a heating pad) it will help them to germinate faster."
Another person on this same forum said he knew of someone who'd successfully germinated an almond from already shelled almonds; they should then, obviously, be as fresh as possible.

fruit trees from seed


]Apple Tree from Seed by Paul Wheaton
There is this story going around that if you try and grow apples from seed, then there is only a 1 in 20,000 chance that you’ll have an edible apple. That’s a pretty daunting statistic. No wonder more people aren’t starting trees from seed. But what if that wasn’t exactly the case?
That myth is founded in a spec of truth. Actually, there is a 1 in 20,000 chance that you’ll grow an apple that can out-compete MacIntosh or Golden Delicious in the open marketplace. That is a [sign in to see URL]% chance it will be the next amazing supermarket industry apple.
Growing an apple tree from seed won’t be true to parent. And that is ok. The odds of growing a really good apple is not 1 in 20,000. In fact, it is actually about 20%. There is also a 20% chance that the apple will be a ‘spitter’. A nasty, mealy crab sort of an apple. The remaining 60% will produce apples that are ok. Good for one thing. They may be good for juice, or good for apple sauce. They may be good winter keepers. Or just an average edible apple. Heck — they could even be good pie-baking apples.
Now that’s a game-changer. 80% of seeds planted will turn into a few excellent apples and lots of ok apples. And not just apples. These figures are the same for most fruit trees.
