Product Description

Sweet, Ice-Cream Flavored Beans in Your Backyard!

Exotic in nature and delicious in taste, the Ice Cream Bean Tree is truly a treat to grow in your home or backyard!

The Ice Cream Bean tree is a large, fast-growing, tropical fruit tree that’s easy to grow. Despite its tropical origins, it's a versatile grower. Keep your Ice Cream Bean Tree in a container indoors, or watch it grow to its full potential outdoors in warmer climates.

No matter where it’s planted, you’ll be able to enjoy the Ice Cream Bean Tree’s one-of-a-kind fruit. Producing bean pods between 1 and 2 inches long, the seeds are covered in a billowy cloud of moist, snowy-white pulp that tastes just like vanilla cream. And when roasted, the seeds can provide a rich source of protein. 

The thick pods can grow straight or spiraled, and the Ice Cream Bean A Tree can measure up to 30-50 feet at mature height. With its gorgeous green, waxy leaves, it’s a show-stopper in any environment. Plus, as a legume, it’s rich in nitrogen - making it an amazing nitrogen additive for surrounding soil!

Don’t miss out on the unique and delicious Ice Cream Bean Tree. Order yours today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For a luscious Ice Cream Bean Tree, use well-draining soil and choose a location with filtered sunlight. 

Select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, and if possible, use organic soil. Set it on a water-filled pebble tray in its early stages to produce a more humid environment. A light misting with a water bottle in the evenings is great for a more mature plant.

If you plant outside, ensure your tree is placed in a sunny area.

2. Watering: Water once weekly with warm water until it drains from the bottom of your pot. Keep the soil evenly moist.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize sparingly ten inches away from the base about three times a year with a slow time released product. Unfertilized, your tree will tend to grow at a slower pace. As legumes, Ice Cream Bean Trees don't need nitrogen fertilizer because they produce their own nitrogen that enriches the soil.

4. Pruning: Remove dead branches in late winter or early spring to open up the canopy and stimulate fruit growth.
