Tamarindus indica - Tamarind Seeds
Tamarind seeds can remain viable for approximately 1 year. Best time for availability is summer, June-September. Seeds are easily germinated by placing them directly into the soil, using moistened sphagnum moss, or giving them a few hour soak in water until they swell. Germination takes approximately 3-15 days usually, older seeds requiring longer times.
Seeds are shipped surface dried, that is to say they are rinsed, seed coat allowed to dry and packed for shipping. The seed inside is still very much fresh and we suggest immediate sowing upon arrival. We do not store seeds, so all tamarind seeds we sell are fresh from the fruit.
