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. They are washing into streams, and eventually out to sea. Because they float, the Amazing Sea Beans travel all around the world, carried by the current. Eventually they wash up on beaches, where they are gathered by families who sell them to help support themselves. The environment is not harmed in any way by the harvesting of Sea Beans.
