trying to grow my first mango tree ca

tonythepirateApril 29, 2013

Ahoy ! Hello there everyone I ate a mango the other day and got the idea to try to grow it!! I read a couple of different websites and decided to go with this technique.
1. Clean the seed off and let it sit outside for two days 2. Cut the outer shell off to expose the seed.
3. Wrap the seed with a paper towel that is slightly wet. 4. Put the seed in a zip lock in a dark place for two weeks but check on it daily to make sure the towel is still wet. The sprout should be growing by this time.
5. I could plant it this time or wait a little bit longer ? This part isn't thought out yet so Idk.... What is the best option .

>Any input on what I am doing would be helpful. Thanks you guys /gals

I have never let them dry out I just take them out of their husk and plant them in soil to about half way in the ground.
