It is fairly tolerant of drought, but will drop its leaves during even normal dry seasons. Tamarinds are grown as ornamental shade and street trees, and for the edible pods. The pods are fed to livestock, and the pulp within the pods is used to make beverages, curries, chutneys and sauces. It's also the basis of a popular drink in the middle east. Tamarind is used extensively in indian and southeast asian cuisine, and is an important ingredient in worcestershire sauce. The juice is used to pickle fish in india. The fruit is said to improve digestion, relieve gas, soothe sore throats, and act as a mild laxative.
