Tamarindus indica a moderate sized to large, evergreen tree, up to 24-30mt. in height and 7 m in girth, but generally smaller, cultivated or found naturalized almost throughout the plains and sub-Himalayan tracts of India, particularly in the South.  Bark brownish or dark grey, longitudinally and horizontally fissured; leaves paripinnate, up to 15cm long; leaflets generally 10-20 pairs, sub-sessile, oblong, 8-30mm x 5-10mm; flowered racemes at the ends of rthe branchlets; pods 7.5-20.0cm long, c. 2.5cm broad and 1.0cm. thick, more or less constricted between the seeds, slightly curved, brownish-ash-coloured, scurfy; seeds 3-12, obovate-oblong, compressed, with a shallow, oblong pit on each side of the flat faces c. 1.5x0.8cm in loculi, enveloped by a tough, leathery membrane, the so-called endocarp.

 Outside the endocarp is the lightbrownish, red, sweetish acidic, edible pulp, traversed by a number of branched, ligneous strands.  The outermost covering of the pod is fragile and easily separable.  The tree has usually a short and thick trunk, with is seldom straight.  It has a handsome, dense and spreading crown of feathery foliage and is prized for ornament and for palnting on the roadsides for shade.  Through it is evergreen, there is abundant leaf-fall and the new leaves appear during March-April.  In very dry localities, it sometimes becomes leafless for a short time during the hot season.  The flowers appear from April to June and the pods ripen in the cold season.  The tree is not exacting as regards the soil and in place it has become naturalized even in rocky land. It, however, thriges best on the deep alluvium.  The tree generall prefers a warm climate and can withstand drough, but is sensitive to frost
