100 Fresh Seeds w/Instructions (seeds are perishable and ship wrapped damp)

Native to the rain forests of Central America, Monstera is a popular foliage plant easily recognized by its large glossy leaves that are dissected with deep splits and perforated with oblong holes. Other common names are Ceriman, Swiss cheese plant (or just cheese plant), splitleaf philodendron, monster fruit, monsterio delicio, monstereo, Mexican breadfruit, locust and wild honey, windowleaf, balazo, and Penglai banana. Fresh seeds are seldom available.

It is said that the ripe fruit of Monstera taste like a combination of banana, pineapple, and mango, hence the name Fruit Salad Plant. To get to its pineapple-like flesh, the scaly exterior must be flaked off and delicately prepared. Makes a great house or container plant. Hardy zone 10+, however, in our zone 9 garden, we trim larger leaves back in fall and cover the remainder of the plant, it comes back just fine every spring.
