Many people say that Ylang-Ylang flowers have the same scent as 'Juicy Fruit' brand gum, sort of a 'tutti-frutti' scent. It does smell similar to that brand of chewing gum, only much better, like a sweet deeply complex perfume. The seeds found inside each of the small yellow fruits are shown. The little bit of pulp found in the ripe fruit is actually edible, tastes like a sugarless mango. The bulk of the fruit is two large seeds, about the size of an almond.
Ylang Ylang Vine is very easy to grow from seed once it germinates. They will take anywhere from 3 to 9 MONTHS to start to show seedlings above the soil surface. Like many vines, this plant is slow to start growing but will take off in the 2nd year of growth. Plant your Ylang Ylang vine seedling in container of good potting soil. Keep evenly watered and warm (75-85 degrees) at all times.
All live plants arrive with Hawaii state Agricultural inspection stamp.
