The Baobab Tree or ‘The Tree of Life’ comes from Africa and also grows in other parts of the world; Arabia, Australia and the Caribbean.
Baobab Trees can live up to 2000 years. Their huge trunks store water for the dry season and the highly nutricious fruit dries naturally in large pods and has a wonderful lemony flavour. It is also called ‘Monkey Bread’!
