What's the difference between hulled and unhulled Bermuda grass seeds?
The short answer is that hulled Bermuda grass seeds are quicker to germinate. This is because they have had their outer seed coat removed by mechanical means, which allows for water to enter the seed quicker, resulting in much quicker establishment.
 
If Hulled Bermuda grass seeds grow faster, why does anyone ever choose unhulled seeds?
The seed coat exists for a reason, to protect the seed during the crucial germination period. Indeed, a long germination period is nature’s way of ensuring survival. Hulled Bermuda seeds only thrive in certain soil conditions. If anything is less than perfect, be it the moisture levels or the soil’s acidity, then the seeds may die before they are able to successfully germinate. It is for this reason that hulled Bermuda seeds are rarely planted by themselves. Instead, to ensure the successful establishment of a planted area, grassing contractors will often plant a 50/50 mix of both hulled and unhulled seed. The hulled seed will germinate rapidly, while the unhulled seed will germinate gradually, just as nature intended, ultimately resulting in a lush and even growth.
