I'm not sure that rooting from cuttings are the best way to go. You may be better off in buying young grafted mango trees with a known root stock that is resistant to soil borne pathogens in your area, and a desirable top stock with the fruit variety that you want to grow. If you take scions to root from a desirable fruiting tree, they may succumb to soil borne pathogens before they get started.
