SPANISH TAMARIND, Vangueria edulis


Was planted in the ground but it started to decline in the bone dry soil so seems that it is not as drought tolerant as claimed. The plant has now been put back into a large pot and seems to be responding well with a bit of water.


Can tolerate some cold and can be grown outdoors in Melbourne in a protected spot. The 4cm round fruits are said to have a pleasant chocolate-like flavour. Would like to grow more if I could find some.
