Ice Cream Bean Tree (2 types)
This listing is for TWO TYPES of Ice Cream Bean seeds (5 SEEDS of each type). Your seeds are freshly collected from the pod 'Machete' variety Ice Cream Bean tree SEEDS and the unknown variety (both shown for your comparison). There are 5 (FIVE) SEEDS of each type, with a total of TEN SEEDS in all.
Your fresh Maui seeds are carefully wet packed in damp paper toweling in sealed plastic baggies. Your seeds will arrive germinating/with roots growing, please open carefully. A lot of times these fast growing seeds will grow roots while still inside the unopened pods. Some times we open fresh pods and see long roots growing all along the entire length of the pod.
Ice Cream Bean tree is a very fast growing tropical tree. The white custard tasting fruit has a delightful flavor. Aside from it's interesting edible pods, this tree is also beneficial in the garden because of its nitrogen fixing properties in the soil. I have several of the trees growing on our Haiku property.
I ship these freshly collected, cleaned and wet packed seeds to you within 24 hours of your order being placed. All packages arrive with an official Hawaii state Agricultural inspection stamp on outside of package. Your seeds will germinate in the mail and arrive viable. Enjoy the fun and satisfaction of growing these tropical fruit trees for yourself. Please note that growing instructions are not provided with or after you receive your seeds. We grow everything outdoors with our year round growing climate here in Haiku, Maui. You will have to research how to grow this plant in your particular area. These are recalcitrant seeds, your seeds will arrive germinating in damp paper toweling/sealed plastic baggies and ready to plant.
Your seeds will sprout in the mail, please be ready to receive and plant them soon after arrival in a container of good potting soil.
