Guineensis x E. melanococca. With continued subculture a fast-growing callus (FGC) was formed which had a FW doubling time of 10-20 days or 30-60 days depending on source. The FGC were granular and friable, and had dense areas of meristematic cells amongst larger vacuolated cells and lacunae. FGC can now be established in 6 -12 months, and of the 61 trees placed in culture between 1978 and 1980, 22 have now produced FGC. Embryogenesis of the FGC was obtained by transfer to a medium 34 Culture Propagation of Coconut, Date and Oil Palm with both auxin and cytokinin (Hanower and Pannetier, 1982), and by subculture the embryoids were multiplied or grown on into plantlets.

(1977, 1979) have shown that embryoids formed on callus whilst it is on the primary culture medium are few in number: this is designated as LFSE (low frequency somatic embryogenesis); when transferred to the secondary medium, an embryogenic callus is produced which yields large numbers of embryoids: this is HFSE (high frequency somatic embryogenesis). The HFSE route is slower, but produces more embryos.
