Amazing Sea Beans are seeds of the Monkey ladder vine, which grows in Central and South America and Africa. It has the largest seed pod in the world.
The seeds fall out of the pod onto the forest floor, then they’re washed into streams and eventually out into the sea.
Because they float, the Amazing Sea Beans travel all around the world, carried by the current, eventually washing up on beaches, where they’re harvested by families who sell them to help support themselves.
The environment isn’t harmed in any way by the harvesting of the Sea Beans.
