The Baobab – surviving under tough conditions

Baobab – is a great source of inspiration and provider of a “super fruit”. The trees scientific name reads Adansonia digitata. They belong to the family of Malvaceae. Baobabs can be found in Africa south of the Sahara in dry and hot savannah areas, botanical gardens around the globe and increasingly on window sills in Europe. If a Baobab collapses and/or is uprooted it can still survive and drive new shoots out of its stem or branches.

Baobabs are real survivalists – they are frugal creatures living in areas with meagre soils and little rainfall. Their ability to regenerate themselves is legendary. They can balance out damage of their bark and branches to a very high extent. If a Baobab collapses and/or is uprooted it can still survive and drive new shoots out of its stem or branches. The fruit of Baobabs contain highly valuable ingredients. They are well known for their high percentage of vitamin C. Nowadays the fruit contents spread out in food and beauty markets worldwide – called “super fruits” or “superfoods”.
