, has anyone ever grown a mango pit?

I have. The first one I kept it in a small pot and as the house plant. I took out the husk for this one. It eventually died, I guess because I did not repot it. I later just burry the pits in the ground. Some with husks, some without. They sprouted. The seedling were about 6" to 8" before winter hit, and they all died during winter. I still leave the dead ones there. Don't want to turn the soil, hoping that they might not be completely dead. But, they don't look too promising.

I didn't move the seedlings into the house before winter hits was because mangoes are big trees. If they cannot survive the winter here, then even if I kept them in the house, eventually I will be running out of the space. dh would not want the foyer to be packed with all of the pots every winter.
