Stan on germinating Mango seeds.
Those yellow Mangos that came in to California? With an especially smooth and sweet flavor?..I was able to germinate two rather fast.
First,you have to let the husk dry a few days. After that its like opening a crab or maybe a clam..you need to pry apart that husk. Not having a crab opener... I used large channel lock pliers to compress the husk to split slightly. Then, a screwdriver to pry it open. There,is the embryo.
I put it into a 50-50 mix of potting soils and perlite,on a heat mat. To my surprise they sprouted in less than a week?..very fast.
Two tree seedlings that will make a great future "grove" !
