Baobab Seeds

Baobab Seeds

5 total reviews

The African Baobab is one of the largest trees to ever exist. It is recognizable by its unusually massive trunk. It is native to Madagascar, Australia, and Africa where it survives by storing water in its trunk which can grow to 10-14m (33-46ft) in diameter. In recent years, the baobab has been dying due to climate change creating droughts in its already arid environment, which leave the tree without any water to store.  

Interesting Properties

  • The baobab trunk can hold 120,000 liters (32,000 gal) of water.
  • Hollowed baobab trunks can be so large, they have been used as schools, prisons, a bus shelter, pubs, and homes.
  • The oldest known baobab lived for 2,419 years.
  • The baobab is one of the largest tree species in the world in terms of trunk, limb, and crown size.

    As Ordered!

    I ordered three sets of baobab seeds, and all came as ordered in the handy glass vials. I planted the first set, per the instructions, and we'll see how they germinate! I had about 10% germination rate with my last set from a different seller, so fingers crossed.
