Manila Tamarind is a really interesting looking medium-sized evergreen leguminous tree in the pea family. The fruits, or bean pods, are rich in Vitamin C. They're bright pink in color, can be eaten fresh, and are often made into a sweet start drink similar to lemonade. The plant is Nitrogen fixing, drought tolerant, salt tolerant, and can grow in most types of soil. It's native India, and the Pacific Coast and adjacent highlands of Mexico, Central America, and northern South America.
