Title: Maturation and Collection of Yellow-Poplar Seeds in the Midsouth

Author: Bonner, F. T.;

Date: 1976

Source: Research Paper SFES-RP-SO-1976. New Orleans, LA: USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 8 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Yellow-poplar fruits are best collected in late October when their color changes from green to yellow-green or yellow. There were no other obvious physical or chemical changes indicating maturity. The seeds are physiologically mature as early as September 1, although high fruit moisture contents make special handling necessary if fruits are collected at this time. Fruits may be picked from logging slash as early as September after natural drying on the limbs.

Keywords: Liriodendron tulipifera L., physical and chemical changes, germination, artificial ripening, fruit and seed storage
