Juicy, Juicy Mangos

Friday afternoon I noticed a mango on my managers desk and asked him if he was going to eat it, and if I could have the mango seed. I explained that I wanted to plant the mango seed and try to grow it at home. Below I are pictures documenting how I opened and seed, which has a smaller seed inside, and how to plant it. I am skeptical about whether it will grow in the Pacific Northwest, but it will be fun to try. I also included a video to document the process. I encourage everyone to try this out and share their results.

That's all for now.

This is the outer mango seed and needs to be opened to get to the inner seed.

Once opened detach the inner seed, you don't need to be gentle.

Fill up a pot with soil about 75%

Place the seed in the soil.

Cover the seed with the remainder of the soil.
Water and place in a sunny place!
