puerto rico mango seeds Question

Posted by compostworm5 9 ( on

I grabbed mangoes off random trees in puerto rico and after eating them I packed them. After they cleared through the ag inspection I noticed the poster on the wall about transporting fruit pests. One in particular was the mango seed bug/fly/moth whatever. Should I plant these seeds or destroy them?

Destroy them. Do you want the sap on your hands from causing the death of everyone in the continental United States's mango trees?

Destroyed them. sorry if I scared anyone

Lol. I was just kidding. You didn't have to destroy them. You could have probably just cut open the endocarp to reveal the seed and then spray the seed with a strong pesticide just in case.
