I wanted to correct that statement. It was 2 weeks in the fridge and it was a nectarine seed. I don't think the fruit makes a difference since they're all stone fruit.

I cracked open 6 of the oldest pluots for the seed and some look shriveled up and a few look like the root is stating to grow out already. I have them on top the fridge and I'll keep tabs on what's happening every few days.

The easiest way I found to crack the pit open without damaging the seed is to use vise-grips set just a 1/2 turn tighter than the pit itself.
