    Planting material
    -----------------

    Seeds are used for planting. Dark brown full sized seeds of matured fruits from selected mother plants are used for planting. Seeds have to be sown in nursery beds as soon as possible since the viability is lost within 8-10 days.
    Seedlings are potted in poly bags filled with a mixture of equal parts of top soil, cow dung and sand. About 10g of rock phosphate are also added. Seedlings are kept under shade for about 6-8 months, then hardened and transplanted in the field. If large size plants are needed seedlings of 6-8 months of age are re-potted in bigger poly bags filled with same mixture and kept for another 9-12 months. Bigger plants establish well in the field.
