Still regarded as a sacred tree in different cultures, it displays outstanding characteristics : it can reach 25 meters high, more than 12 meters wide and live more than a thousand years ! It is not called "tree of life" only for its extraordinary longevity, but also because of its pharmacological proprieties. Its fruit is rich in vitamin B1 and C as well as calcium. The baobab fruit pulp and leaves are used to fight malaria. The leaves also represent a precious source of minerals and proteins for the inhabitants of several remote parts of Africa. Each fruit contains about 30 seeds with an especially hard hull. Baobab Oil is extracted from these seeds and it is estimated that each baobab tree will produce an average quantity of only one litre of oil per year.
