Tasty Inca peanuts grown in Thailand

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.

When the Inca peanuts ripen they turn brown and can be harvested.

Now the brown seed pots of Inca inchi can be harvested

You can harvest about 100 seed pods every two months.

That amounts to about 3000 Plukenetia volubilis seeds per year and plant

You can either grow more Inca peanut seedlings or eat the nuts.

    • Lieber Herr Ludwig,

      in Nong Khai haben wir noch keine Inka Nüsse gepflanzt, wir können Ihnen Samen schicken, falls Sie wollen.
      Die Wegbeschreibung nach Nong Khai befindet sich auf der Webseite unter Location, auch auf deutsch. Sie finden ihn aber auch über Google Maps “Discovery Garden Nong Khai”.
      Der Garten in Nong Khai ist noch weniger klar strukturiert als hier in Pattaya, wir haben dort vor allem Graviola Setzlinge.

      Mit Ihren Wurzelproblemen kenne ich mich leider nicht aus.

      Alles Gute

      Hans Fritschi

  5. Hallo Hans,

    LG, Frank
