This is the third year now my mini tamarind is bearing fruits. The tamarind is the sweet kind. Many people are just so amazed everytime they see the fruits hanging. I bought this 4 years ago and the seller said its grafted and instead of planting in open space I decided to put it in clay pot. And now the small is giving fruits. I have my kids won't pick the fruits just like the previous years. They were tempted to get the fruits even if its not ripe. My photo of my plant

Wow. That's awesome. Is tamarind known for its sour taste and you mentioned this one is sweet?

yes, this one is the sweet kind, not good for sinigang but best when you eat as a fruit.

@ilocosboy How about making it a candy? We used to buy Tamarind and cook it, sell it after.

Ha ha, come and pick, too bad you have to lay down when you have to pick the fruit because its too small.

Oh yes, the easiest for the grafted trees to bear fruits. Actually you can buy seedlings of calamansi in the market which are already having fruits.

I re-read when you mentioned that it's a sweet kind. Couldn't figure it out, if it's a bonsai, they bear sweet fruits?

I don't if its the proper term, bonsai, so I used the mini word because its just small kind. But yes, the fruits are very sweet, not suitable for your sinigang dish.

Kids do spoil fruits they pick them before they are ripe only to throw them away.

that is why I got angry to them, the fruits are not yet ripe and then they just pick it because they just wanted to pick, oh my, now they know I don't want that to be harvested.

Last year my children picked all the fruit and I got mad at them because they didn't until it to ripe. Now no one of them will pick the fruit until its ripen.

I like tamarind especially when its hammered and then put water and a little bit of salt and then the dried shrimp, oh man that was a good soup for me. So Filipino.

we had a tree when we were kids and i loved climbing it. i didn't know you can grow tamarind trees from grafting. since you put it in a clay pot, does this mean it will never grow taller?

Yeah, it will not grow tall. But when you plant it in open space it will still grow, but maybe just 3 meters, more or less.

sour tamarind is not intended for eating, it is intended for cooking sinigang.

I have a small kumquat tree that bears every year, sometimes twice a year. But if I don't watch carefully, the caterpillars will eat the flowers and I get no fruit.

Is kumquat somewhat similar to tamarind, the problem with tamarind is the insect we call "aplat" a very cotton-like insect that cover the fruits until it die down.
