As inga beans ripen, their outer color will transition from green to yellow to nearly brown. Their fibrous pods will retain their smoothness, yet can wrinkle slightly. Inga beans will begin to communicate their ripeness through a pleasantly sweet fragrance, but don’t let it linger too long. Inga beans have a short shelf life and can be super fragrant when they begin to spoil. On your countertop, inga beans may only last two or three days. In the fridge, inga beans can keep fresh for a few weeks.
