It's not feuillei. Feuillei is a lot more sqare shaped. I would guess it is cinnamomea. What do the flowers look like? The flowers on cinnamomea are very distinct, white and globe shaped.

Thank you Oscar for correcting cbss_daviefl , I didn't wanna suggest him to buy some reading glasses ...your pic ( and mine ) are clear and sharp so it is obviously not the feuillei . Somebody suggested I. laurei ( or something like that ) what do you think ? I was really thrilled when I tasted this one , far superior in taste than all the others I have tasted so far .

CInnamomea fruits are big and fat, these look relatively small. Also leaves don't match my cinnamomea tree.

Sorry, the postimage page displayed your picture at less than 3 inches for the full sized image.  Looks like they are trying to change the layout and the ad pics now to the side instead of the bottom so I could not see the detailed shape... ;)

Just call me

How is the growth habit and growing needs of Inga laurina vs. other common Ingas?  Does it like as hot of conditions to produce fruit, or is it fine with milder weather?

Are these trees easy to graft? I have a 4-5 year old seedling in my yard (haven't fruited yet) that I want to graft other varieties on. What are some good varieties?

I'd be interested to learn about this as well.  I'm growing I. uruguayensis which is supposedly one of the more cold tolerant Ingas, but I'm told it doesn't have much pulp to eat.  It might be interesting to graft I. laurina on it.

I have Inga Spectabilis and Inga Jinicuil on my list to get since they have huge pods. Not sure about the taste though. I hope someone can chime in here about them.

Cinnammomea is often rated as one of the better tasting ones. The ones i've had so far on the cinnamomea the pulp clings to the seed. In other ingas the pulp is non cling.
The great thing about vulpina is that the tree is dwarf, also it is very ornamental as the flowers are pink. Most ingas have white flowers.

Have your cinnamomea ,edulis and vulpina fruited and how old are the trees?Ingas seemed underated in south east asia and i dont know why because it is very rare especially in Malaysia.There are some of inga edulis trees in Mulu sarawak which was supposedly introduced by Bruno Manser (a swiss enviromentalist who when missing and presumed death.his death has many mystery ).Never tasted any ingas in my life but from what i read it does taste delicious

actually, i recently created a post about Pilosula
it has smaller fruit
supposedly easily identified because of its yellow flowers.

The cinnamomea is fruiting. Started fruiting at about 4-5 years old. The edulis and vulpina are still small.
