I have already mentioned my umma's love for plants in some of my previous posts.This particular tree I mentioned was grown from one of the seeds thrown away during a function at our home long back(after making Mango juice for the guests)-just a few months after we started staying in our new house back home.We had already purchased new mango saplings from nurseries and had planted those,which was guaranteed to grow within two years time and to bear loads of Mangoes but nothing happened as such ,it took more than 2-3 years to grow with very little fruits and that too in alternative years.But this tree grew strong and high within 3 years and from then on each Mango season we are always getting Mangoes till date Alhamdulillah ...I am mentioning it here because at the growing stage of this plant someone or the other would just pull it out with it's roots saying,''Ooh this won't grow,it will take years ,it won't bear much fruits"etc..
