Tamrind looks 'sick'

    1 responses

SamfordSusie starts with ...
Hello. Can anyone please help me with this tree? I was told it is a tamarind, and it did look like one. It always looks 'sad', just not very healthy or growing well. Straggly. I mulch it and add some composted manure at times. Is there anything I can do to give it better care please? Thanks, Susie

Hi, There is one way to test if it is a tamarind tree. The young leaves of the tamarind is edible. We use it to make sour soup very similar to Tom Yum Goong the Thai sour soup. Try the young leaves and if it is really tamarind it should taste very sour or acidic. The real tamarind tree can grow 10 metres. I am not aware if it can be grafted or if there is a dwarf variety and if there is a male or female. If the taste test confirms it is a tamarind may be you need more research to find out if you have a female or male tree.
