River Tamarind exists as a pioneer species in its natural habitat, covering disturbed areas and thriving in neglected landscapes.  Native to Mexico it’s now found all over Asia which is where we came across it growing on road sides and being used in plantations for stock feed and nitrogen fixing.  The young leaves and beans/pod are edible.  We see it as a great potential as a pioneer species, a nitrogen fixer, fodder feed and bio mass producer as it coppices well.  Best for those in the warmer parts of the North Island.  Grows to 10m
