Photo of [Tamarindus indica] tree showing large trunk and spreading branches. Capt. Scobie and Mrs. Hodges. Tamarindus indica - the largest tree on the island - ripe pods sent in.... Pods vary from 1 seed to 10 or so or 1/2 to 6 inches in length. Used locally for drink (like lemon). Hindus call it Imli while negro-Portuguese call it tamarind. Used for preserves, as limament, medicine etc. etc. Pleasant acid taste and makes a good drink. [Shantz travel journal, July 28, 1919]
