How to grow a mango tree from seed

| 21 Comments

Lately I see people coming to my blog looking for a way to grow a mango tree because of my baby mango tree.

So this post is for those people wanting to grow an indoor mango tree. I have 3 mango trees πŸ™‚ Two of them are 1 year old and the third one is 8 months old.

Here’s what I did πŸ™‚

Ate the mango ( pick the ripest mango you can find ). Ok so now you will have a big seed left. What I did was a small cut with a knife in the husk ( around the side ) and carefully opened the husk with my fingers. You will have a big bean now.

If the bean looks healthy plant it in a pot with the hump side up and a little exposed like in the picture below.

All my three mango trees were first planted in tiny pots and later I put them in bigger pots. Plant them in good potting soil with plenty of sand. The pot size depends on how big you want the tree to be. Make sure it has a good drainage and keep the soil moist. Put it in a sunny place.

And that’s it! They grow pretty fast and it’s a joy to see them becoming lovely mango trees. In the winter season I keep them inside in a warm place with plenty of light and in summer I put them outside in full sun and they are very happy.

Mango is a delicious and healthy tropical fruit rich in antioxidants and vitamins, it’s good for immune system and releases stress.

With patience and care you can still get an indoor mango tree . The plant grows fairly quickly if cared for properly. In summer you can keep it in your yard or balcony and it will certainly be happy. Mango loves full sun!

Good luck growing mangoes!

  11. Hello,
    interesting post. I’m also trying to grow mango trees from seeds. It’s working with seeds (beans) from the Osteen variety. I’m also trying with seeds from the Kent variety, and next with the Keitt and Palmer.

    Have great day
