Which part of seed on germination develops into shoot?


Plumule develops into a shoot on germination.


Plumule is the part of the seed embryo, which develops into the shoot after the germination of seeds. It is a shoot tip, with a small bud-like or a small portion of the plant embryo. It is also called a baby plant or a new plant arising from the seed embryo.

Role of plumules

  • The plumule is an embryonic component that aids in the production of the shoot system, which includes the stem, leaves, flowers, fruits, and seeds.
  • Via the biological process of photosynthesis, plumule offers nutrition for the developing embryonic plant.
