Help identify the species
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:12:44 AM »
I got these seeds, and I do not know the name. The person who gave them to me also does not know what it is. Who will say what is it called?

Life is wonderful!

its called mango.

i think with the fruit completely off the husk, the fibers can look like that.

that root looks to be wrapping itself around the seed.
if planted in ground, they know which way is up...
in a baggie, getting moved around, the roots dont know which way to grow.
Not saying its necessarily a problem
but, i would put it in a container shortly.

The seed is large, about 7-9cm long, covered with villi ... I've never seen this before.

to me it looks like a normal mango seed

if you throw a mango seed out in the garden after eating it
bacteria and worms etc... will eat all the fruit off of it
if you then wash it off, it will look a lot like this.

i cant speak to the size, nothing in the pic to reference
but Kent is a large mango, ripening about now i believe.
