Another striking find during a walk at Flamingo Gardens. I wanted to touch them and see how hard or soft, how light or heavy they felt. Too high in the tree to answer the question. Look at the Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) tree. God (or whatever higher being your recognize) never ceases to amaze and humble me with his designs and creations.
The Tamarind tree are filled with pods caring multiple fruit which is edible and medicinal. The fruit is sweetest when the pods are dark brown. Each Tamarind tree yeilds over 350 pounds of fruit per year. CLICK the image to learn more. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
Tamarind is a native of Aftrica; but enjoyed in many tropical parts of the world. I look forward to trying to view it when in flower, though the flowers are less striking in presence. I look forward to buying some Tamarind jam for my breakfast toast. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
