What is it?

It is a large fruit—almost as big as a coconut—that grows on large and imposing “upside-down looking trees” in Africa. It has a hard outer shell and a naturally dehydrated pulp. Yes, the pulp dries up while it’s still inside the shell and it is this same pulp that people eat and that tastes like a citrusy sherbet. The fruit is heavy, about three pounds, and it is “heavy” when it comes to nutrients too.

Its history as a food and medicine to the African natives is long. They eat the fruit to treat afflictions like fever, gastrointestinal problems, malaria among others. It tastes great, too. When the fruit is mixed with water, it tastes somewhat like lemonade.

Baobab seeds on the other hand have a taste akin to cream of tartar and when meals are scarce, these are pounded and used as a food source.

Aside from food and medicinal purposes, Africans consider the tree an important source of timber and hollowed out trunks are often used as shelter, water reservoirs, storage of grains, meeting place and even as a burial site. The bark is used as raw material to make as clothing, sacks, fishnets, cords and when grounded, can also be utilized as flavoring for food. The tree’s leaves are eaten as a vegetable (and used as leavening) which can also be used as animal fed. No wonder Africans regard baobab as a sacred tree!
