Description for Tamarindus indica, Imli
Tamarind is a leguminous tree in the family Fabaceae indigenous to tropical Africa. The genus Tamarindus is a monotypic taxon, having only a single species.
Planting and care
Choose a proper site for the tamarind tree. It needs full sun and some protection from the cold when young. You may choose the south side of a slope for this purpose or build your own cold protection for the first couple of years.
Plant a tamarind seed in the spring 1/2-inch deep. Seeds collected from pods remain viable for months and will germinate a week after planting.
Caring for Tamarindus indica
- Water the newly planted seed every other day, just enough to moisten it.
- Keep it moist until it grows a few inches above ground then pull back on watering
- After the seedling starts growing vigorously on its own, it will need watering only once a week during the growing season and only enough to wet the roots
- Gradually taper watering in the fall, and stop in the winter.
