Arid Region Plants Info-Popup Baobab Tree

Baobab Tree is the common name for the nine species of tree in the genus Adansonia. Six of these species are native to Madagascar, two are native to Africa and one species is native to Australia. Baobabs live in arid regions and can grow to immense size and store tens of thousands of litres of water in their trunk, giving them a distinctive “bottle” appearance. Their leaves are edible, rich in vitamins and can be used medicinally to treat kidney and bladder diseases, asthma and insect bites.
