Harvest tons of sweet and tart fruit

The Tamarind Tree is a landscaping favorite because this tree has a unique vase shape and a thick canopy filled with pairs of leaves that give it an exotic look. In the winter, pale green flowers emerge, adding bursts of color to the landscape before turning into tan seedpods. 

The tan pods contain an edible fruit pulp that’s juicy, sweet and tangy. The pods have thin shells so you can go out to your tree daily during the summer and crack open a few pods for a rich and refreshing snack. 

Tamarinds are most popular for eating fresh, but they are also used in a variety of culinary dishes all over the world. Tamarinds are used to flavor jams and sauces like BBQ sauce. The sweet yet tart flavors complement meats, stir-fries and curry well. It’s also popular to flavor homemade beverages and to make desserts like ice cream.  

When snacking on Tamarind flesh it’s like eating candy, but it’s actually extremely healthy. Tamarind flesh is full of vitamin A, vitamin C, B vitamins, potassium, iron, zinc, fiber and more to naturally boost your immune system and keep you regular. 

If you live outside of the Tamarind’s recommended growing zones 9-11, place your tree in a container and keep it indoors during the colder months. This tropical tree variety will brighten up any room of the house while flowering and fruiting. 

The Tamarind is low maintenance and easy to care for when planted in the ground or in a container. They’re drought tolerant and will grow in areas with a lot of humidity. Tamarinds are strong trees that will thrive in coastal areas with their high level of wind resistance and salt tolerance. 

Tamarind Tree Pollination

Tamarind Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Tamarind Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Tamarind Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Tamarind Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Tamarind Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Tamarind Tree again after the transplant is complete.

when will it start to produce fruit?
rumtea on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It can take up to 3 to 4 years.
Will this tree yield fruit if planted in a container?
Mitzie W on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tree will yield fruit in a pot, but i highly recommend planting it in the ground. The reason for planting it in the ground, is because it is a nitrogen fixer. Which the tamarind produces through it's root system. Tamarind can be trained in bonzi culture, but it is a very large growing tree. Which produces large amounts of shade, for your area. Good luck!
How tall will they grow?
Lori A on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They can grow 15-25 foot tall.
