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.

When we were kids we would make a tamarind drink. Make it like a cup of tea, sweetened to tast, refrigerate. Better than cordial. Now living in NSW, I miss Mums beautiful big Tamarind tree.
