Customer Tips & Reviews Tamarind
DARTS CREEK, QLD, Australia
Fast growing. Will eventually throw shade and provide leaf litter.

As a kid in Mackay there used to be a tamarind tree outside the Slade Point post office. I think it was a life saver as there wasn't much decent food in our house at the time.I feasted on the tamarinds and also eat the leaves.Wonderful nutrition.
I am in north thailand and enjoying a sweet tamarind in season; but one is sweeter than the other; 2 varieties it seems. do you have the sweet one or sour one?
Have since found out that a species of Tamarind is native to this area and this one came all the way from Kyogle. Needless to say I am very happy with my tree and it loves it here. It has taken off and has grown 1m since it was planted last year.
