This work aimed to evaluate the conditions for in vitrogermination, to obtain explants for the micropropagation of three varieties of peppers. The germination of fresh and dry seeds and the morphology of germinated seedlings at different concentrations of the MS medium were evaluated. The data were submitted to analysis of variance, and the means were compared by the Tukey test at the 5% level of significance. It was found that for cumari-do-pare seeds the germination rate is higher when these are from fresh fruits. In general, the MS50% culture medium presented the best means for the evaluated species.
