 The Ice Cream Bean Tree (Inga feuilleei) is a tropical delight, famous for its sweet, vanilla-flavored fruits that resemble long pods. Ideal for fruit enthusiasts and those seeking an exotic addition to their garden, this tree can reach up to 60 feet in its natural habitat, though it is often smaller in cultivation. Its lush, green, pinnate leaves create a dense canopy, providing excellent shade.

The tree's unique fruit, with its cottony, ice cream-like pulp, is a favorite for its delicious taste. 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! Inga feuilleei is well-suited for tropical or subtropical climates and prefers well-drained, fertile soil. It likes full sun to partial shade and regular watering, especially during dry spells, until well established.

Beyond its edible fruit, the Ice Cream Bean Tree is valued for its nitrogen-fixing ability, enhancing soil quality, making it a great choice for eco-conscious gardeners. Whether for its tasty fruit, shade, or environmental benefits, Inga feuilleei is a versatile and rewarding tree to grow.

    Both little trees look good on arrival. Instructions enclosed! Both trees are approx 6 inches tall and both have multiple green leaves. Both “pots” were still some what moist upon arrival as well. The plants are not as described from the picture above. They are much small and less mature. Still a good looking product so far. I am pleased with my first purchase.

    I had to destroy the box to get my trees out of it. They where so secure inside the box that nothing would of disturb them. There was no dirt in the box the plants where taped and stapled to the box. Who else does this??!! I will definitely be referring you to EVERYONE and bragging about how but love and attention you put into each and every product no matter how big or small. A+ Amazing job guys.

    P.s. I never give good reviews I swear look at my Google account. I can't be more please I took pictures but can't upload them.
