Small-leaved Tamarind is a small, dense tree that produces large orange fruits with a delicious, tangy pulp.

Watch for small, cream-brown flowers in November to January, turning to large (up to 6cm across) yellow-brown bulbs in February and April. These bulbs will split open when ripe, revealing the bright red flesh of the Small-leaved Tamarind fruit. The flavour is refreshingly tart with a distinctive taste that lends well to both sweet and savoury dishes.

This plant is a prolific fruiter, capable of bearing many kilos in a harvest. Simply wait for the fruit to split before plucking off the tree.

The Small-leaved Tamarind prefers part shade and a well-drained soil that’s rich in organic matter. Keep it watered through the dry season and apply an organic or slow-release fertiliser in the early Spring.

Host Plant for Bright Cornelian Butterfly.   

Fully grown - Height approx. 7-10m, Width approx. 6-8m.
