Coconut Cream mango is true from the seed?

Seed came from Dr Campbell

No, Coconut cream is poly.
It is discussed in this thread:
http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=12030.100

So, it MAY be true to seed.  There will be one zygote and the rest will be clones.

The one I planted was poly.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

What do I do with two little trees come from 1 seed? Should I remove one and which one should be? My ccr mango gave me one fruit, and I am so excited to try germinating the seeds to see if it is truly poly.

Keep both of them, in my experience, the strongest is the clone, and if the seeds come up mono, it may be because the nucellar seedling outcompeted all the other ones. Although occasionally you'll get a strong zygote.

JUST wanted to display my current CC still pushing out growth even after our cold snaps and its not done yet still pushing growth from 3 other branches on the other side. Beautiful tree I must say. Not bragging just sharing. Anyone else can show pics of their CC?

Will keep eyes on it, and thanks for your advice
