Hi Brad,
With weather getting colder, what are their chances of germinating?

Start them in a greenhouse and the chances of germinating are good.

Hey Brad,

Great to see that your tree is producing well! I am interested in some seeds. How many do you have? I can pickup along with the thermos I left at the fruit party.

Hello, you will need to start them in your house or garage or wherever they can be kept warm like a heat mat and you will get 100% germination.  Obviously this is not the ideal time to sprout mangos outdoors but its when my fruit are ready to pick, thats out of my control.

I have more seeds if someone wants some.  Send me a message so I can ship them out asap. 

I also have some cotton candy, j12, and taralay seeds.

Hi,

I would love to buy a variety of mango seeds you have available.  Do the ones you mentioned in the ad come true to seed?

Thanks,
Matt

I would love to throw my hat in the ring, on the off-chance you have enough to go around. Awesome opportunity!
It's always a good day when you get to plant a tree.

Are sweet tart seeds good rootstock? I'm surprised by the demand. I grafted fruit tart this year, so hoping I get to taste it in the next year or 2.

They're polyembryonic, which makes them a great candidate to grow as an ungrafted tree. A portion of the embryos will be a clone of the original.

Yes it's one of the best tasting mangos and it produces and grows well in CA and come true from seed.  It's the total package.  This is what people in CA should be growing.

Yes, I agree with Spaugh insofar as Sweet Tart is a great-tasting mano.

I have two tweet tart trees growing at two different locations, both grafted on Manila. The 1st in Alhambra (Very inland and hot) grows and produces well with quality fruit. The 2nd grafted tree on Manila rootstock in the SoCal Coastal Zone in my location in 92647 grows moderately vigorously but has issues with pollination, Powdery mildew in spring and into early summer. The cooler coastal temperatures have a negative effect on the sweet start of Flowering and fruit formation. My tree has overall been disappointing in terms of fruit production for the last several years.

Location, Location is the key. Sweet Tart prefers warmer inland locations. Just my experience and two cents.

Doesn't every mango prefer warmer inland locations?

Hey Brad, I would love to be added to your list of people seeking seeds of the sweet tart. I too am located in San Diego and have been told by several growers that this cultivar is where I need to start with mango.

All the sweet tart seeds I got from Brad are now seedlings. Most of the seeds sprouted two to three seedlings each. Since it is winter, I used heat mats and clear storage containers to keep the heat and moisture in to germinate.

I tried vertical and horizontal planting the seeds as an experiment and the seeds that were planted vertically seem to have a more vigorous growth. I placed them all directly in potting soil 1 gal container.

The three containers in the front are some of the sweet tart seedlings.
