Velvet tamarind is a member of luguminosae family with scientific name Dialium indum. It grows under tropical climatic conditions and also bears fruits. Its fruit has black greyish shell but it may have different color in different area. I got this in a supermarket in Bogor of Indonesia.

The flesh of fruit has orange-brown color, powder-like similar to velvet, with sweet sour taste.

In Indonesia we call it asam keranji.

When I was a child we played game with this fruit with friends. We would press two whole fruits to each other. The fruit which remains un-cracked is the winner.
