That's it.  That is the full question.  How can I make a mango tree out of a cutting...

Also, can I propagate a cutting from a avocado tree instead of a seed?  I have a good little tree growing from a seed, however, I've been told that getting avacados will be much quicker, like 10 years quicker, if I start by a cutting.  Is this true?

I have read up on grafting, which I will do, once I get two different cuttings grown in to trees to be (which I had been advised) at least the circumfrance of a pencil.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for but here is an interesting video on growing mango trees from the seed:

 

 

Here is another on avocado trees and grafting.  It sounds like grafting does increase the quality of the fruit and the speed at which the plant produces fruit.  This is a very good video:

Hello

My husband and I live in rescue, ca.95672.

we are wanting to plant and grow our own avocado trees, from seed or whatever method is best for our area.

Could you please advise us on the information and/or website/link that we can look into the process to start our growing?

Thank you in advance,

Tim and mindi

I HAVE BEEN READING ON THIS SUBJECT FOR THE LAST 4 MONTH, I BLIEVE THAT YOU NEED TO START ONE OF THESE TREES IF NOT 5 OR 6 AND TRY GRAFTING. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN START A TREE FROM A CUTTING. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE GRAFTING AND HOPEFULLY BE SUCCESSFUL. I BELIEVE YOU GET BETTER RESULTS BY STARTING A PLANT TREE FROM A SEED. YOU NEED TO BE PAITIENT IT WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY 1-1/2 MONTHS BEFORE YOU SEE ROOTS AND TREE START PEEKING OUT OF THE SEED, THE YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. GET YOUR INFO ON THE WEB. LOOK UP GRAFTING AVOCADO ETC. AND CARE SO FAR I HAVE 5 SEED THAT HAVE ROOT GROWING I A CLEAR PLASTIC OR GLASS CUP 12 TO 16 OZ. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS THEN START LEARNING ABOUT GRAFTING TECHNICS. I HOPE I'M SUCCEEDS
