You may want to contact Laguna Hills Nursery in Santa Ana, and ask for Kevin who may have some grafted mango tree on Manila rootstock for sale toward end of July.  They also take custom order on request rootstock and graft varieties.  Mimosa Nursery is also a good choice but theirs are from Florida and most likely on Turpentine rootstock.

I知 embarrassed to admit I have killed 5 mango trees either bought from known online nurseries or local nursery like Champa. As luvfig said most of these are likely from Florida which will thrive for 2 to 3 years then die. I did everything according to the growing mangos in ca thread, not letting it fruit, afternoon shade, winter protect, etc. Mine property has sandy soil. I have avacado, citrus, anonna trees fruiting and growing well. I just purchased 5 turpentine seeds and buried them in the ground 18 inches. I知 impatient and wants some home grown mangos while i still have teeth.

18 inches seems a bit deep to plant the seeds. They will die.
I have a m-4 on Kent rootstock I can send you
I wish you the best in growing mangoes!

In nature, the fruits fall and rot or get eaten which leaves the seed sitting flat on top of the ground. You  can cover it with a little soil to minimize seed-stealing pressure from squirrels  but 4-6 is way too deep.

I知 must have misread or misunderstood. Accord to Simon Grow in this thread https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=23124.0. I guess Simon meant to to say loosen the dirt up to 18 inch and probably not burry that deep.

With Manilla or random seedlings as rootstock, plant the seed or seedlings in its permanent location in the warmest area of your yard. It is a good idea to plant in native soil that is loosened to a depth of at least 12-18 inches if possible. Deeper is better to some extent but in many yards across California, you will hit an extremely hard layer of rocks and clay just several inches below the topsoil.

My seeds germinate best when they are barley covered. A lot of the seeds themselves turn a bright green when healthy and pushing new growth. I don稚 know for sure but I assume they are actively photosynthesizing to push the growth.
