After planting, it takes mango trees between two and four years to produce fruit. Once the fruit appears, it requires three to six months to mature.
Before planting, mango seeds endure a thorough, somewhat extended, germination process. The large, flat seed of the mature fruit must be removed and cleaned. After a notch is made a notch with a chisel or its exterior sanded with sandpaper, the seed should be placed in an open jar of room-temperature water and set it in a warm spot. As the mango seed soaks in water, it takes about seven to 14 days to germinate, or start producing shoots. Once the seed begins to yield shoots, it's ready to be planted in fertile, well-drained soil.
