I discovered the Ice cream bean tree growing in a public permaculture garden. I have heard a lot about this tree, the fruit of which is supposed to taste like vanilla ice cream (hence the name).
The golden - brown wavy pods are easily snapped to reveal the fruit inside:
The 'fruit' is actually a thin white wispy membrane covering the large seeds. Although mildly pleasant, it is a bit fanciful to compare the taste to that of vanilla ice cream. It is, however, an attractive tree of about 4m in height and a spread of 5 with drooping branches and waxy pinnate leaves. The seed sprout readily (as do most legumes) and is a fast grower. It would make a great small tree for somewhere something is needed quickly.
