Product Details

Name Tamarind

Family Name Cesalpiniaceae

Other Name Imli

India is the only producer of tamarind on a commercial scale. A large part of India’s production of tamarind is exported to West Asia, Europe and America, where it is used for food specialties like Worcestershire sauce. It is used as the equivalent to lemon juice in Indian cuisine, but is also used extensively in Asian cooking. It is often used to make juices, soups, chutneys and bean dishes.

The tamarind, a slow-growing, long-lived, massive tree reaches, under favourable conditions, a height of 80 or even 100 ft (24-30 m), and may attain a spread of 40 ft (12 m) and a trunk circumference of 25 ft (7.5 m). It is highly wind-resistant. Tamarind is actually the fruit pod produced by tall, semi-evergreen tree grown primarily in India. The beans and pulp within the pod are virtually no smell, but is has an extremely sour taste.
