Native to Africa, this tree is the predominant feature of the Savannah landscape and is said to reveal the presence of a watercourse from afar.

All baobab trees are deciduous, losing their leaves in the dry season, and remains leafless for nine months of the year. They produce very large, heavy, white flowers in early Summer and their fruits are large, egg-shaped capsules which are filled with pulp that dries, hardens, and falls to pieces which look like chunks of powdery, dry bread, the dry fruit is edible.
