Ice Cream Bean Tree


Originally from Central and South America. A big attractive tree with spreading branches and gorgeous white and yellow flowers. Edible beans that taste as vanilla ice cream! Over the last 10 years it has gained popularity in Australia as a nitrogen fixing tree that produces large velvety pods filled with creamy sweet flesh. Its popularity has also generated concerns about its potential to spread, from QLD to NSW.
