Det er rent faktisk meget nemt og simpelt at lave et mangotræ fra frø. Alt du skal bruge er en mango, en urtepotte, noget jord og en lille smule tålmodighed. Så næste gang du spiser en lækker mangofrugt, overvej at beholde det store frø indeni, så du kan gro din egent lille baby mangoplante.

 

METHOD

When you have eaten the fruit, you need to remove the outer shell of the pit. It can be a little difficult, so using a knife might be helpful to crack it open – but be careful not to damage the pit inside the shell. Then lay the seed in a piece of paper towel and soak it with water until it is evenly moist and put it in a plastic bag, which you close to keep the seeds damp. The bag should be placed in a dark warm place for about two weeks, for instance under the kitchen sink or under your bed. After two weeks, the seed has sprouted and roots have been formed – it is now time to place the seed in soil. Often the plant is also starting to form, so make sure to plant the seed with the roots facing downwards and the plant upwards. Cover all of the roots with soil, but leave the top of the seed free of soil. The soil needs to be kept evenly moist, but make sure there are draining holes in the pot so you avoid it becoming too wet and root rot. Place the pot in a warm and light spot, like a south facing windowsill. The more sun, the better. After a few days, you will see the plant start to grow and form leaves, and now you have your own tiny mango tree!

Når du har spist frugten, er første step at fjerne den ydre skal af frøet. Det kan være lidt besværligt, så en kniv kan være meget behjælpelig til at få den åbnet – bare vær forsigtig ikke at ødelægge frøet indeni. Herefter pakkes frøet ind i vådt køkkenrulle, som så puttes i en pose som lukkes til for at holde på fugtigheden. Dernæst placeres posen et mørkt og varmt sted i 2 uger, eksempelvis under håndvasken eller under din seng. Efter de to uger har frøet dannet rødder, og det er nu tid til at plante det i jord. Ofte er selve planten også begyndt at blive til, så sørg for at plante frøet således, at roden vender nedad og planten opad. Dæk rødderne med jord, men sørg for du stadig kan se toppen af frøet over jorden. Jorden skal holdes godt fugtig, men sørg for at der er huller i bunden af potterne, således overskydende vand kan løbe ud, og jorden ikke bliver alt for våd, så du undgår, at rødderne rådner. Giv planten en varm og lys placering, eksempelvis i en sydvendt vindueskarm. Jo mere sol, jo bedre. Efter få dage vil du se planten begynde at gro og danne blade, og du har nu dit eget lille bitte mangotræ!
