Benefits of Tamarind

Climate

Very young trees should be protected from cold but older trees are surprisingly hardy. Wilson Popenoe wrote that a large tree was killed on the west coast of Florida (about 7.5? lat. N) by a freeze in 1884. However, no cold damage was noted in South Florida following the low temperatures of the winter of 1957-1958 which had severe effects on many mango, avocado, lychee and lime trees. Dr. Henry Nehrling reported that a tamarind tree in his garden at Gotha, Florida, though damaged by freezes, always sprouted out again from the roots. In northwestern India, the tree grows well but the fruits do not ripen. Dry weather is important during the period of fruit development. In South Malaya, where there are frequent rains at this time, the tamarind does not bear.

The word capital, in politics/geography, refers to the town or city that is the official center of a country's government:
  • Washington D.C. is the capital of the U.S.

    The word capitol is very specific - it refers to a building or complex of buildings where the government meets to make laws.

    t

    The capitol building in the U.S.

  • London is the capital of England.

    In economics, the word capital refers to wealth (money and/or property) belonging to a person or company. A business that is just beginning needs start-up capital (an amount of money to get started).

    We also have capital letters (ABC) - the big letters that are different from lowercase letters (abc).

    Capital and capitol are pronounced the same.
