can a mango tree, grown from seed, be maintained in a pot and not planted?
I want to grow mango from seed but want to keep it in pots. Is this ok and will it still bear fruit? I live in northern Florida (Panama City Beach), but like some of my fruit trees to stay in pots.

Yes, you can grow them in containers as long as long as it is large enough to accommodate the tree once mature. Your seedling tree, however, shouldn't require too large of a pot for at least the first year or two. The following article should be of some help to you. Though it's for dwarf types, the same principles will still apply: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/fegen/dwarf-fruit-trees-a-planting-guide-for-fruit-trees-in-containers.htm
