What Has Happened! Double Mango Sprout From ONE SEED! Crazy!

Perth, Australia(Zone 11)

Hi Guys,

This is a duplicate thread - I originally posted this on the Tropical forum, and then realised that there was a Tropical Fruit forum.


So, Jake & I planted a mango seed (store bought - Asian grocer) about 5 weeks ago, and to our surprise it has sprouted 2 or 3 shoots. The first one to shoot up, was the light green one that we suspect isn't a mango tree. The second one was the bigger, darker leaf one - it shot up with 3 leaves. The third one shot up this morning with 4 developing leaves. Does anyone know what has happened and why the one seed has multiple shoots?

What do I do about this?

They have multiple embryoes in each seedcase. You usually just let the strongest one grow or you can gently separate them.
