Stinking Toes Fruit

    6 responses

Linton starts with ...
Here you can see my beautiful Stinky Toes.

It is also known as Jatoba or Hymenaea courbaril from South America. The Stinking Toes tree produces fruit pods that contain a sweet granulated sugar-like powder.

The seeds are very easy to germinate - 100 percent! And as they come up they look like Triffids or weird man-eating plants. I've had some growing for over a year so they seem to do ok in Melbourne.

But if you are gonna grow stinking toes, you'll need to know how to eat them. You have to smash the pods with a hammer and then you can eat the powder straight out of them. You can see how to eat them on this short video. Enjoy!

Sounds and looks interesting.
How long will you have to wait for it to produce ?
What's the size of the tree ?

It is a huge tree in the wild but can produce fruit when still small, perhaps when it is only 2 metres high. I don't know how long it will take to reach that size and it will also depend on the conditions, but I will try to keep it to a manageable size.

Below is a picture of a plant grown from seed one year ago. Also a web pic of the fruit pods - stinky toes. Cheers.

Hi Linton,
Would you be willing to sell me some seed? I've just discovered this tree and would love to grow it.
Cheers
Jo

Sorry Jo but I don't have any seeds. They were all sown a couple of years ago.

Just watched a livestream by DavidTheGood on youtube and he called that plant a West Indies Locust.
