Planting Mango Seeds, Then Grafting?
One of my neighbors has moved away and his mango tree has pretty much been stripped by animals. The coons and possums devoured the mangos and left debris on the ground under the tree. Some of this debris is pits.
If I gathered these pits and planted them, would mango trees sprout? Of course, if they did, they would be inferior specimens, right?
Would they make good rootstock? I don't know what variety my neighbor's tree is, but if I grafted my Glenn cuttings onto whatever sprouted from these seeds, would the result be good?
I'm also wondering what would happen if I grafted cuttings from the ORIGINAL tree onto whatever sprouted from the seeds originating from THAT tree?
Any advice would be appreciated.
