Ice Cream Bean Tree (Inga Spectabilis) Seeds
This listing is for FIVE (5) Maui grown Inga spectabilis ('Machete' variety) Ice Cream Bean tree SEEDS. Freshly collected from the pods seeds are carefully wet packed the 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 opened. These seeds will germinate on their way to you. These rapid growing seeds will grow into small trees quickly.
You can leave the seeds in the damp paper toweling/sealed plastic baggies that they arrive in for about a week (indoors, no light needed). 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. 75-85 degrees is the ideal teperature.
Ice Cream Bean tree is very easy to grow with the right conditions, is beneficial for your garden soil. Once mature your tree will produce pods with an edible vanilla custard tasting pulp. It took about 4 years for our Ice Cream Bean trees to grow from a seed to producing pods.
PLEASE ADD A HEAT PACK TO YOUR ORDER IF IT IS CURRENTLY FREEZING WHERE YOU LIVE.
