Mango ovary/flower

Hi there, thanks for being open to questions.

I am growing a mango I have a question about, I brought a mango fruit from the store & planted the seed in summer 2017, now it’s spring here & has started flowering for the first time, I looked at all the google images & diagrams of a mango flower/ovary & noticed all had a single ovary/to-be-fruit in the flower, I wanted to know if it’s common for a mango flower to have 2 ovaries in the 1 flower like my seedling grown mango does? See photos attached.

Thank you
Regards, Jabuticaba

This is common in some Mango cultivars. That is really cool that it is already flowering this young, as this usually can take up to a decade from seed.

You will notice, once your tree does begin to bear fruit, that many of the seeds will be polyembryonic. This just means that seeds will contain twins, or even triplet trees.
