Mitjo this reminds me of a mimosa, does it flower? Also looks like Jacaranda a little bit?

yes, leafs look little bit like Mimosa...and Jacarnada too.

oh yes, it makes flowers and fruits....but this one is so small...that there will go many years...

Mitjo it's been over a year since the last post on this thread and I wonder how big is your tamarind tree by now? We used to have a tamarind tree when I was growing up and the fuits are so delicious kinda sour though.

Hi Halaman.
Like the topic says, that tree grows in Helsinki Botanical garden.

My tree is pretty big already, but some of leaves are dead. It got too much sun on spring.
