I read somewhere that Inga seeds needs to be roasted before they are edible...

Out of about 250 species of inga there are only a handful that have edible seeds, and i don't think vulpina is on that list. Most are toxic, so do NOT eat, even after roasting.

No seeds yet. The vulpina, unlike all the other ingas i have, is very slow growing. No flowers yet.

Yes toxic is different than deadly. But i guess if you eat enough toxic can become deadly.
BTW most beans (fabeaceae) family are toxic. The edible beans are the exception. And even the edible almost always have to be cooked to become edible.

Hi, I am new to this forum and just learning about the Inga plants.  I have ordered a couple and plan to eat the cooked seeds, I believe this is ok for the Inga Fuellis but I am not clear re: cooking and eating the vulpina?

Hi! I really don't now. I try a bit raw and didn't feel anything special. It seems it's toxic, but i don't know if it continue to be toxic if cooked...

Hello my friend! No, it was a plant that Miguel gave me 6 or 7 years ago. They take a lot to flower...

OK, mine are only about 3 years old. Some of my other ingas, like edulis, fruiting after only 2 years.
