I always heard it goes seven times to the devil before it will germinate (the idea being that it is so hard to germinate, as you mentioned). If the belief is specifically associated with Good Friday being the only *safe* time of year for it to go to hell and back, I cannot imagine it not having something to do with the Harrowing of Hell, so maybe that would be a fruitful avenue for inquiry? But that's all I have are guesses.
