Question

Why do boiled seeds not sprout


Solution

Germination is a process that requires certain enzymes or proteins. 

When the seeds are boiled, these enzymes or proteins are killed. 

Thus, boiling the seeds tends to damage the cell organelles and other nutrients which are essential for germination. 

This is the reason that makes the boiled seeds, not sprout.
