[NAFEX] Pawpaw seed--floaters and sinkers

I don't think I have encountered a floating pawpaw seed - they all sink.
And germination exceeds 90%.
Maybe you should split one or two floaters and see what is inside?

Am cleaning pawpaw seed to ship to someone who will germinate them.  About 1/2 sink and about 1/2 float.  Does one 1/2 or the other have a higher germination rate, after cold stratification, or do I assume they are all equally viable?  Anyone with pawpaw seed experience in this area?
