Tamarind Indoors?

Has anyone successfully grown Tamarind trees indoors and gotten fruit?

Are you aware of Mexican Tamarind – Guamuchil (Pithecellobium dulce)? This is in the same Family as true Tamarind (Tamarindus indica), and the fresh flavor is superior to the dried Indian spice. I grew this plant at my previous home in Rancho Penasquitos and sold about 15 a year in my nursery business. I think this plant could be cultivated to fruit indoors with sufficient 6500 Kelvin lighting and supplemental warmth in Fall, Winter, and Spring.
