Buttercream had a seed that looked like it could be mono or polyembryonic and it just sprouted. It appears it could be Polyembryonic since I got two sprouts. I just have to verify if they are from different segments and have two different sets of roots. I donít want to disturb it now so Iím just going to let it grow.

Hereís a few different E4 sprouts. They all look normal to me so far. The only one that looks weird is from the seed that looked Polyembryonic. It was all twisty like Coconut Cream seedlings and it browned back. I expect to see some new growth on it soon.

Buttercream definitely Polyembryonic, at least this one I got


I also confirmed Honeykiss is Polyembryonic

Behl, in the third picture, you can sorta see that two sprouts came up from the E4 but got sunburnt. Hopefully two more sprouts will shoot up. So far all other E4s are mono

Not quite a mango, but when transferring a pitangatuba sprout to a bigger pot, I noticed two tap roots coming out of the seed and the start of the second sprout. Way too difficult to separate, so for now they grow together:



Back to polyembryonic mangoes . . .
I got three sprouts out of a NDM seed. When I went to separate them, discovered these two were connected to the same single tap root:



Together they shall grow.

Remember the possibility of twins and triplets from sexual reproduction;  so an occasional occurrance of more than one plant from seeds of a variety that normally seems to be monoembryonic are not necessarily proof of polyembryony, even though the latter tends to be our first guess.

Hereís an E4 seedling that looked like it was Monoembryonic but it ended up popping two sprouts. I gently tugged on the bigger sprout and the little one didnít move. Thereís a good chance itís actually Polyembryonic. You can see the neck of the second sprout just starting to straighten up out of the soil.

That's wild I haven't even thought of that! Are most "twins" identical?
