We grow Plukenetia volubilis, also known as sacha inchi, sacha peanut, mountain peanut or Inca peanut in our Discovery Garden outlets in Nong Khai and Pattaya. We offer Plukenetia volubilis seedlings and seeds for sale in Thailand and Laos. Inca peanuts are easy to grow from seeds, have a high yield and are very healthy.
First I planted 20 very expensive Plukenetia volubilis seeds in Pattaya which I had acquired through the Thai internet. The germination rate was with 100 percent very high.
It was a matter of days rather than weeks until my Plukenetia volubilis seeds in Thailand took off.
My new Inca peanuts in Pattaya were not being held back by gravitation.
The sacha inchi seedlings in Pattaya (Thailand) climbed up around a big bamboo stick.
The formed clusters of male and female Plukenetia volubilis flowers.
The male flowers pollinate the female flowers and the Plukenetia volubilis fruit starts tow grow.
They are green first, containing 4 to 6 Inca peanut seeds.
When the Inca peanuts ripen they turn brown and can be harvested.
You can harvest about 100 seed pods every two months.
You can either grow more Inca peanut seedlings or eat the nuts.
Thos Inca peanuts have to be peeled and roasted.
Now you are ready to plant more Plukenetia incha seeds or eat the roasted nuts.
