Because of the tamarind’s many uses, cultivation has spread the world in tropical and subtropical zones. The tamarind is a long-lived, medium-growth plant. Fruit tastes sweet and fleshy.

Trees will not tolerate cold, wet soils but are tolerant of salt spray and can be planted fairly near the seashore.

Apply 1/4 lb. and gradually increase to about 1/2 lb. Thereafter, young trees should receive 1/2 lb. per application, per year of tree age, 3 – 4 times a year. Bearing trees can be fertilized with 8-3-9 NPK or similar analysis, at rates of about 1/2 lb. per application per year of tree age. Microelements, particularly iron may be required for trees in alkaline soils.
