Tamarandus indica has been planted throughout many countries in the World for its fruit which is popular in jams, juices, candies and drinks. Growing to a height of 60 ft. with trunk diameters of up to 2 ft. this hardwood has a small area of heartwood that is bold red with contrasting creamy white sapwood. Our spalted stock is hand selected for only the finest color figure! Pin and bug holes are common. All spalted areas have the potential of being soft. We recommend CA glue to stabilize these sections. Tamarind is originally from Africa but has been planted Worldwide. Our stock was grown in Laos.
