Ice-Cream Bean/Inga 10+years won't flower

    1 responses

Farouk starts with ...
Hi All,

I have planted an Inga Ice-cream bean from seed which came fresh from my uncles fruiting tree which he chopped down!! And I never got to taste it, as I found it in our family fridge when I got home one day & it had already become to old/damaged to eat, so I saved the seed & planted it hoping one day to taste it.. 10+ years later still waiting to see the flower, hasn't flowered once yet, dad gave it the chop a couple of times to the ground & it shot back up its now around 3-5metres tall & wide but still no flowers, any tips ?? Other than putting electrical fencing to keep it from not getting chopped again.

Hi Farouk, it could be that its missing some micronutrients or simply potassium which is essential for flowering. This can be sourced from a good gardening store. Often cutting a plant back heavily will shock it into fruiting, but this doesn't seem to have helped you. Have you viewed the Daleys You tube video on cincturing, this is a technique to induce flowering. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45wYnQG9kjE&t=3s
