Seed Balls
« on: April 09, 2019, 02:48:40 PM »
This thread is focused on the use of seed balls to plant polyembryonic mango varieties or other tropical fruits, during rainy season.  There are websites like: http://www.seedballs.us/ and videos ... search "Masanobu Fukuoka Makes Seed Balls" to see more about how seeds are put inside a mixture of clay and dirt to protect seeds until they germinate.  Using seed balls to plant mangos may not be ideal since the seeds need to be so fresh, but then again maybe being encased in a clay dirt ball helps protect the seed longer?

If you know of a good mango variety that is polyembryonic or a tropical seed that germinate easily, post it here so those so inclined can test this method of planting. Thanks.

This study on rootstocks tested with Kensington Pride has a list of polyembryonic mangos... all but Glenn.
