High seed germination is an important criteria in the seed industry, so the discovery of new processing processing methods that can improve percentage germination will be of great benefit for seed producers as well as for farmers. Seed germination tests of two pepper varieties (Bozok and pinar) that were dried using common (sun, shade, greenhouse) and novel (oven, microwave, liyofilization) drying methods were experimented. Two types of solid medium were used, one which was a mixture of peat and perlite (M1) and the other that contained only vermiculite (M2), a paper wet test in petridish (M3) was also performed, but was not replicated. There were no difference between both medium but a difference in viability in both varieties, Bozok was found to be more viable. Sun drying gave the highest emmergence rate 80% and 60% respectively in M2 and M1 for Bozok. Novel drying methods had no positive effect on seed germination.
