    4. Dietician teacher teach me nonsense, how is 'velvet' a botanical name? Botanical names depicts genus name and specie name example Zea(genus) mays(specie) is the botanical name for maize. So is velvet a genus name for some plants or is tamarind a specie name?

      Velvet tamarind is an English common name for trees with botanical names like Dialium guineense.

      Delete
    5. @Dietician the English name is Velvet Tamarind while the botanical name is Tamarindus Indica. You are welcome.
