Ice Cream Bean Tree Seeds
This listing is for FIVE (5) Ice Cream Bean tree SEEDS. Try growing this fun, easy to grow tropical fruit pod for yourself. In season in our on Maui garden at the moment. This exotic fruit tree is beneficial to the soil (with its soil nitrogen fixing properties like most Legumes. We have several of these trees dotted around our fruit orchard to help the other trees.
(When in season, we also offer a different variety of Ice Cream Bean, the Inga spectabilis 'Machete' variety).
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. A Farmer here on Maui told me that this bean pod is a favorite with older Locals who fondly remembering eating the cotton candy like fluffy pulp from these 'Ice Cream Bean' trees as children-years ago, long before everyone on island had refrigeration for real ice cream.
Organically grown on Maui, this seed is very popular with my Customers. I personally grow, pick, package and ship these fresh Maui Ice Cream Bean seeds. Your seeds will arrive packed in damp paper toweling in a plastic baggie and will germinate on their way to you. You can plant them right away or have the fun of watching them grow for up to a week or so in the plastic baggie that they arrive in. Keep evenly watered. Terrific gardening project to enjoy with Children.
*Surprise samples included with every order.
