|Citrus produce two types of seed: Monoembryonic and polyembryonic. You may be seeing the difference between the monoembryonic and polyembryonic seeds.
It is easy to tell if you dissect your seeds but that makes it hard for them to germinate.
After they germinate, the less vigorous ones are probably monoembryonic and the more vigorous polyembryonic.
Why is this important? The polyembryonic seeds will produce a citrus true to its parent. The monoembryonic seed will not.
