It takes four to seven years for a mango tree to bear its first fruit, but the way that this mango seed grows, sprouting its young dark red-purple leaves, is still a wonder.

The Boxlapse YouTube channel captures this one year-long time-lapse from seed to small mango tree to demonstrate its early growth.

“So next update video February 2023 and full mango seed to fruit video coming earliest February 2026.”
