If your area does snow from times to times ( or below 58 F most of  cold months), then you definetly need winter protection from about Oct to April. Mango seedling will be a stronger plant than a grafted one, but a cost of not knowing when will it mature to start flower, neither what kind of mango will you have. You must have fresh seed without pulp to grow seedling.  Bury it about 3-4 inches deep after clean the pulp because the pulp may inhibit seed germination.  Soak it a few hours before seeding may help germination. Not all seed will sprout because depending how ripe the mango was picked, and if it has been in cold storage too long or not. It need warm and moist environment to sprout. The young seedling will not survive cold months if no protection from cold be done for the first few years. Mongo like a little bit dryness in the cold months. Plenty sun, enought water and nutrition during warm months. Thin young fruits, and do not cut flowers spike.
It's simple here in zambia becuase of the good weather. Just pick a ripe seed and bury it in soil with enough water then you see it coming out.
This is a tropical plant and will not survive your winters.  It would have to be gradually brought inside to an enclosed above freezing area with sun and it would need to be watered.   I don't know the PH for that mango, you can go on line and check for that.  I would definately let that seed totally dry out and be sure no fruit pieces are on it.  Happy Fall.
