I have been wanting to give this a try, even though it takes many years before the trees produce fruit, so says all the research I have done about growing mango trees from their seeds.
So, I am going to give it a try. I prepped three seeds from mangos that I bought at the grocery store. It will be interesting to see if they germinate, as they say a lot of the produce you get at the grocery store that is not organic will not germinate (much like what you may have seen with the potato/sweet potato experiment posted on youtube).
Anyway – day one. cleaned and scarred the seeds, set them in a container of water. According to the instructions I found, I will need to drain and replace the water every couple of days. They are supposed to take 10 – 14 days to germinate and start to show sprouts.
Stay tuned! If this works, I am going to take at least one, maybe two of these over to the church garden to plant.
Have you ever tried to grow a tree from seed? What kind? Were you successful?
