Tamarind (Sweet)

Product Details

The Sweet tamarind tree has a dense and wide canopy. The leguminous Tamarind tree can grow  up to 18.2 metres high and starts bearing within 4-5 years. Fruits can be seen from December through April. Fruits are ready for harvest when the pod is dull brown in color and outer shell can be peeled open to expose its dark brown flesh. The tree produces bean-like pods filled with seeds surrounded by a fibrous pulp. The pulp of the young fruit is green and sour. As it ripens, the juicy pulp becomes paste-like and more sweet-sour. Tamarind is very popular for its delicious appetizing fruit. The soft, succulent, juicy ripened pulp is usually used in confectionery and as an ingredient in chutneys, pickles, curries, preserves, beverages, and sherbets. Tamarind also has several nutrients, electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals.
