I'm trying to do the same with a mamey seed--something new in the market from
?Central America, the mamey fruit is hairy as a kiwi, shaped like a mango and
about the size of a very large avocado. The taste was somewhat
disappointing--"a large, soft carrot" came to mind--but I thought, what the
hell, kept it in water until the hard seed split open a bit, then planted it.
