I have just been looking for something on my hard drive & I found these instructions.. I had mine for about 6 yrs before the weather got to them last winter.. Just a bit too chilly in the corner they were in.. So I shall be starting another one next year... If you would like to grow one this is how I did it.. Enjoy your fresh Mango, after you have finished the mango take the seed and run it under some luke warm water and try and get the fleshy sticky string pieces of the seed.. let the seed dry for a couple of hours.. you will need the following.. pair of cutters or secetuers and a knife cut around the outer edge of the outer casing of the seed ( husk) carefully you don't want to cut or pierce the seed inside, after you have cut (clipped) the outer casing on one side. take a knife and run it down the centre of the husk and apply a sawing motion.. it is still a big seed inside the husk..! As you can see by the lighter... leave to soak over-night in a bowl of water.. After the mango seed ( kernel) has been submerged in a dish of water for 24 hours I experimented with 2 methods of germinating the seed.. Paper towel and put in a plastic bag, carefully take it out and wrap kitchen paper around the whole seed and spray water over it, make sure its really moist, insert the kernel inside a plastic bag & soil method in a plastic bag layed flat in soil on the side of the windowsill the seed needs light to germinate so leaving it next to a window sill or in a greenhouse ( if you have one) check everyday make sure the paper towel does not dry out,, keep misting it with water 7 to 10 days later & I had this.. You can see the root developing.. as you can see two growth patterns.. The root will find its way down and the first shoot then goes upwards ( as you can see) the hump part of the seed goes up. when you plant out you can leave the seed on its side it will sort it self out.. A closer look at the hump of the seed, you can see the shoots reaching for the sky.. I then potted them up into clay pots.. .. The paper method and the soil method were both successful.. I started 6 mango seeds 3 in each medium and all 6 sprouted around the same time frame.. They are now in terracotta pots outside in the garden.. They will not mature in our climate at all, but they make interesting indoor tropical plants. You can over winter them in a heated greenhouse but it must be above 10c minimum.. Or a heated conservatory..
