cmo said...

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.
