Anyone growing this enormous tree with the stinky beans ? I just got a few seedlings and was wondering how long it might take to fruit. Parkia speciosa

I'd definitely grow one if I could as I love the taste and smell of petai,
especially in Sambal Udang.
I seem to recall someone years ago telling me that they can take up to 20 yrs to fruit.
... dont know for sure.
Do you have spares?.... or let me know where to get some?
a friend in FNQ may want one or two to plant on his block...

A local here just told me everything grows so well in Tully , you can half the time to bear , and double the size of anything !! Slight exaggeration [ maybe ]

Alan Carle...should've guessed that he'd have it. :-)

Cupuacu....Nice one!
I have often wondered if that was being grown in Aust. somewhere up north.
friends have told me that it's delicious,
they were working in Ecuador at the time (1992),
but unfortunately they didn't get the opportunity to bring some seeds back for me.
Well at least I know it's potentially available

Hi Speedy and Trikus,
My best petai tree is pictured. It copped a smack in cyclone Larry but regrew. They need a bit of care to get established and they are extratropical. I know of less than 20 trees in Australia and most have not fruited. My tree is 5 years from seed.
