African Baobab Bottle Tree (adansonia digitata)


HUGE unusual white, waxy flowers of up to 8 inches give off an aromatic scent awaiting pollination from passing bats and moths. Developing fruit of 4inches in length or more have hard woody shells covered in velvety yellowish hairs. The edible white powdery pulp in the fruit is high in Vit C and makes a refreshing drink. Digitata is a solitary tall round canopied tree with a large swollen trunk reaching as much as 85 feet high over time. The trunk is covered in a soft, smooth yet fibrous bark that is remarkably fire resistant.
