The botanical name for the African baobab is Adansonia digitata, but in fact, people have come up with a few more names for it. Because of its unusual crown, it is called "a tree growing with its roots up". Because of its massive trunk, which in its shape resembles a bottle - "bottle tree". The baobab tree is not very tall - 18-25 m, although the thickness of its trunk is simply amazing - it reaches 25 or even 40 m in circumference. Leaves are oval, pointed at the ends, shiny, dark green. Large white flowers with five petals and a bunch of numerous stamens open late in the evening and live only one night, attracting the scent of bats pollinating them. After a while, peculiar fruits develop - boxes, in size and shape resembling a melon and covered with gray tomentose pubescence. Inside they have a sour white flesh with many small black seeds. Elephants are known for their special craving for baobabs. They eat these trees almost entirely - from leaves and branches to the trunk, inclusive, giving the elephants the juicy fibers of the core. The vitality of the baobabs is amazing. A fire can burn out the core of the tree, but it will grow as if nothing had happened. The bark, if ripped off, will grow again. Roots in search of water can grow hundreds of meters from the tree. The life span of baobabs is 2 - 3 thousand years, although many biologists claim that some of them live up to 4 - 5 thousand. In Africa, the baobab is considered a miracle tree. Local healers treat almost all diseases with medicines prepared from the fruits, leaves and bark of the baobab.
