Have a look at:…

Something like "Seeds that have an underdeveloped embryo at the time of 
dispersal and require specific temperature conditions for embryo 
development and radicle and cotyledon emergence have morphophysiological

Short version of the URL:

Put it another way just because you can't see the embryo does not mean 
the seed is a dud, the embryo may develop later.
