The Tamarind (Tamarindus indica) is a leguminous tree in the family Fabaceae indigenous to tropical Africa. The tamarind tree produces edible, pod-like fruit which are used extensively in cuisines around the world. Because of the tamarind’s many uses, cultivation has spread around the world in tropical and subtropical zones.
The local tamarind is very sour but makes the tastiest drink! The name of this fruit was chosen to represent our challenging hikes but have no fear – the view is worth the climb!
