Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: About the Inga genus
« Last post by pineislander on Today at 07:59:41 PM »
I think they neglect Inga fruits because they don't have a great economic benefit, taste is vaguely similar to ice cream but probably too perishable to think about shipping them, and most of those growers are near-subsistence farmers. If you want to grow them, I'd suggest direct planting rather than in containers. I planted quite a few and they come up strong from large seeds with a distinct tap root. Putting them in pots may slow them down. Mine sat still for many months but seem to be slowly picking up speed now. In south Florida

Also check any pineapples (Bromeliads), the recently introduced to southern California Aedes egypti aka Asian Tiger Mosquito will breed easy in those, even when the water dries out the eggs will hatch when rehydrated.

I live by it. When I plant banana keiki on a poor day you can clearly see it struggle as compared to one planted on a proper moon.

The Polynesian people knew what they were doing.

Sure. Why dont you go ahead and send me some plugs?

My wife has a degree in Mycology. I think I know which ones will kill me or make me terribly sick.

There are issues and benefits to slash and burn. We can solve them.

You can get locally grown on probably better rootstocks. Exotica had 40+ last few times I visited. Not yet the best varieties though.  And yes they are expensive. Comparable with Florida.

I had 2 this year grown on Pine Island. Never had this before. The flesh was all white, the skin was green with white specks. Had a resinous green taste. The taste phenomenal.
