Mango Tree Identification?

    10 responses

Jon starts with ...
Hello everyone! I live in Pittsburgh, Pa, USA. I am growing a mango tree from a seed that I got out of a mango fruit. However, the leaves of my plant do not look like a typical (longer) mango leaf. Actually, the seed sprouted 2 shoots. Attached is a picture of the leaves on my plant. The plant is about 6-7 inches tall, the first two leaves that originated on each of the 2 shoots looked like the prototypical longer mango leaves. Those leaves have now shriveled up, and all leaves now look like this picture. Any idea on what it is?/what type of mango tree?

Your response would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Hi Jon,
Looks like you had some old cucumber seeds in the potting mix?
Doesn't look like a mango to me. Mango leaves are longer and thinner than what's in the photos.

Well that's the weird part, Brendan! This was new potting mix right out of the bag. Also, the shoots are coming right out of the mango seed!

To be honest, I'm not even sure! I bought it from a grocery store. It had the typical oblong shape, redish/yellow hue, bright yellow/orange flesh.......sorry

Thanks Mike - my thoughts too but no matter as not tasted glen yet but have tasted King Thai or Maha Chanok last year from Darwin supply that were pretty good - Long with a wonderful blush and thin seed - a note to Daleys for possible mislabelling? Not seen what King Thai look like half grown?
