Inga Bean Cutting ??

    3 responses

Farouk starts with ...
Hello Everyone!

Exciting time of the year with amazing growth on all plants.

Anyone ever heard or tried to plant the Inga via a cutting ??

My reason is I managed to get 1 seed a few years back almost 10 years ago & had it germinate and become a tree at my parents, since I have now moved out I would like to plant one at my new home, unfortunately mums tree doesn't have any fruit on it yet as it keeps getting chopped down & regrows.. doesn't have a chance to put out fruit & I have no idea where I can get a seed from.

Wondering what your thoughts are on doing a cutting on a mature inga bean plant or if you are kind enough to give me some seeds?? I am more than keen to pick it up asap.

I live in Cabramatta nsw don't mind a drive over the weekend or on evenings after work.

Thank you so much!

Yes they are very simple and fast growing from cutting. I grew some from stem pieces I had cut and had been lying around for a few days. Just stuck them in the dirt and they grew......so easy!

They haven't fruited yet but I don't expect they will be much good as they are probably the ones with short brown velvety pods which seem to be the most common type here.

I have been looking for a true Inga edulis plant that has long pods with waxy green skin as these are supposed to have superior taste. It looks like the one in your photo so please advise if that is the tree you are trying to grow. Thanks.
