Hi i'm totally new to planting, but I would like to know how to plant a mamey seed. All I could find is that it takes 2 months supposedly to 'germinate'; yet I don't know what exactly germinating is and if there is a specific way I would need to germinate it.
I would sincerely apperciate if somebody could give me directions on how I would go about growing a mamey plant from a seed.
Is it this? It's the only thing that comes up in Plant Files when I put in "mamey" in the common name field
Pouteria sapota: http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/102877/index.html
I don't know how to grow it, but if you can confirm this is the plant you mean hopefully someone else will know
Based on those links, it looks like it could be either the Pouteria sapote that I linked to, or Mammea americana. This is why I don't like common names! reeling--any thoughts on which one it is that you have?
