After eating a mango, instead of throwing away the seed, try planting it to make a beautiful, fruitful houseplant or replant it outside to grow a fruitful mango tree in your yard. The following steps will show you how to grow mangos from a regular mango seed.
Purchase a very ripe mango and eat it.
Scrape off the extra fruit from the husk in the middle of the mango, which holds the seed.
Pry open the husk very carefully with a butter knife. This is difficult and will require patience and a little elbow grease.
Find the dried seed inside the husk that is shaped like a huge lima bean with a light-colored area on the top of it (called the eye). Remove the seed from the husk.
Use a medium-sized pot with drainage holes for your seed and fill the pot with a good quality potting soil.
Dampen the soil and place the seed with its eye up. Cover the seed with about half an inch of the soil. Let the seed germinate for a few weeks.
Water the soil with lukewarm water when the surface starts to feel dry, which will be in a few days after planting. Water the soil whenever it starts to look dry.
