A staple in Mexican and South East Asian cuisines, tamarindo lends a signature sweet and sour taste to dishes. Grown in Mexico, the tamarind pods contain a tangy brown pulp, which is often used to create a paste for cooking. The pod that the seed comes in is delicate, and will come cracked or broken. Tamarind in Central and South America is often used to make desserts, and aguas frescas or sweet tamarind beverages.

Price is ok. Tamarind was fresh, but so sour.. bad luck.Yuri, Pompano Beach, FL
