• Ice Cream Bean Tree (Inga Spectabilis) Seeds


    This listing is for FIVE (5) Maui grown Inga spectabilis ('Machete' variety) Ice Cream Bean tree SEEDS.   Larger amounts of this seed are offered when in stock.  I carefully wet pack the freshly collected seeds in damp paper toweling inside sealed plastic baggies.  Sometimes these fast growing seeds will have roots already growing the length of the entire pod when I open them.  These seeds will most likely germinate on their way to you and you can observe daily growth from them.  Small leaves will quickly develop and that is when you know that the seeds are ready to be placed in soil.  They can be left in the damp paper toweling/sealed plastic baggies that they arrive in for about a week.  Please keep them warm but out of any sunlight until they are planted in containers of good potting soil.
    Ice Cream Bean trees are extremely rapid growers.  With all tropical trees, you MUST keep them WARM and WATERED at all times.  
    Ice Cream Bean tree is very easy to grow, beneficial for your soil and produces a fast growing tropical tree.  Once mature your tree will produce  pods with an edible vanilla custard tasting pulp.  
    The automatic shipping calculated at checkout is for shipping within the U.S. only.   International orders please add International shipping charges.
