Use code TROPICAIREHOMESTEAD20 for 20% off entire order The Ice Cream Bean tree is a fast-growing fruit tree native to South America, with unique bean pods that have a sweet flavor and cotton candy texture resembling vanilla ice cream. The tree is also a great source of nitrogen for surrounding soil and the roasted seeds provide protein. Pruning the trees in late winter or early spring can stimulate fruit growth. The cottony pulp inside the pods is high in dietary fiber, polyphenols, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories. However, the seeds should not be eaten raw.
