The best way to ensure that it will graft will be to graft it to an older Tamarind tree. Generally, once you have acquired the older tree, it will already be of production age. Grafting a younger branch would not serve any useful purpose.

Letting it grow on its own rootstock will be one alternative. They do quite well on their own roots.
