So recently I had an incident where I had used my pocket knife to open up some seeds that had been packed in plastic that was all melted together to make a kinda bag I guess for em. Well ended up slicing a tiny chunk out of one of the seeds. I ended up soaking it instead of tossing and it germinated in 8hrs. I gave it a shot because in the past I have accidentally cracked some seeds squeezing them seeing if they crush and 9 times out of ten they, Not only Germinate they start to poke out within 10-24 but always before the non cracked seeds. Anyone else ever try this or inadvertently done this and have success?

I have tried seed cracking intentionally and yes, it does work. There are even purpose made seed crackers on the market. A small pair of pliers and some good hand control is all I used to do exactly the same thing. All you want to do is to barely crack the seed so only squeeze till you hear the pop. I no longer do it, even forgot about it till your post showed up.
