Germinating in light or dark
So does light affect the germination process of peach seed? I've got the seed embryos/kernels and placed them in a wet towel for 2 months now! The fridge (drinks fridge) light is always on and can not be switched off! My main question is do peach seed need dark environment to germinate or it doesn't matter?

I'm not sure if this is a continuation, or a duplicate, but I have answered the question on the original.
Light does not matter, especially if these have not been cracked out of the outer stone (carefully, since prussic acid is quite dangerous, so wear gloves.)
In short, no. Light will not play near the role that temperature, conditions, and time will.
If you leave them in the shell, then you may not see action for upwards of 6 months or so.
Please refer to my original answer for a faster way to germinate these.
