Unlike other fruits, tamarind has a thin, crisp shell that covers the slightly dry flesh. The flesh turns from green to brown and tastes sweeter as it ripens. The black seeds can be roasted and eaten as a healthy snack. Sour tamarinds are normally used in cooking, while sweet tamarinds are delicious when consumed in dried form. Tamarind contains a lot of nutrients for the body.

Peak Season: December-January
