Tamarind questions

Tamarind pods and seedsA dear friend just introduced me to Tamarind. He gave me some seeds to plant, and one sample to taste. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve heard of “it” before so searched the Internet for information.

What the hell is Tamarind? was the first one I read (because of the title).

Of course, Wikipedia provided additional information.

California Rare Fruit Growers has this to say.

Dr. Mercola writes What is Tamarind Good For. (I want to know the health benefits.)

That was interesting!! One day, soon, I’ll plant the seeds my friend gave me. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
