Another Inga ID
« on: September 07, 2019, 10:05:17 PM »
Hey all! Was wondering what species inga this is? Looks like the last one on Weird Fruit Explorerís taste test. My old boss said heíd give me some pods from his tree and that it was sweeter then others that he has tried. I expected him to bring feuillei or spectabilis as that seems to be the most common here, but he brought me these. He didnít know the name as he told me it was an old type that was just called Inga when he got it decades ago. Any ideas?
The best time to plant a fruit tree was 20 years ago. The next best time to plant one is now.

I also got somme seeds from Costa Rica where there ate more than 60 different species of Inga grow.I dont know what specie i have and not even the seller knew.
If its edible,grow it,eat it.Dont eat the seeds thogh without getting well informed about how edible they are.
