Tamarind Seasonal Fruits
Tamarind tree is the native of Africa and south India. It grows to the height of 60 to 70 feet with a broad trunk. It is an ornamental tree with a longevity of 120 years. The leaves are one inch long leguminous, half an inch broad and sour in taste. The flowers are pinkish-white and sour in taste.
The fruit is a legume measuring from 2 to 10 inches long having a shape of a crescent. It is covered with a brown color over the green epicarp when it is tender. As the fruit ripes the covering becomes hard and brittle and the pulp becomes dark-maroon having strings of fibres and about 7 to 10 large brown hard seeds. The pulp is sourish-sweet in taste and emits a typical sour odour. When the outer covering is dry the fruits are plucked and the pulp is separated from outer covering, fibres and seeds. The pink variety is called Lal imli
