Harvest Tons of Sweet, Tart, and Unique 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.

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.
