Experience the remarkable Ice Cream Bean tree. This tropical leguminous fruit tree is a fast-growing native of South America. The bean pods measure up to a foot long, with a soft, cotton candy-like interior and sweet, vanilla-like flavor. Roast the seeds for a protein-packed treat, but don't eat them raw. Also, the pulp is full of dietary fiber, polyphenols, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories! Plus, Ice Cream Bean trees are terrific soil nitrogen-fixers. Prune these majestic trees in winter or spring for increased fruit growth. Ice Cream Bean trees are very fast growing, are self-fertile, and grow well in full sun or part shade.
