Source Plant: Baobab is the "oldest" in the plant kingdom, generally living 4000-6000 years. The tree has a spectacular shape, the fruit is as big as a soccer, sweet and juicy, and is a very popular food for monkeys and orangutans. The baobab has provided life-saving water for many people traveling in the savanna, saving travelers whose lives were in danger due to thirst, hence the name "tree of life". If you are thirsty in a desert with baobab trees, you don't have to use your "reserves", just dig a hole in the belly of the baobab with a knife, and the sap will gush out like a fountain, and then you can drink. The baobab tree lives with life, and as long as it is there, there is nothing to worry about when traveling in the desert. During the great famines of African history, the baobab fruit, the "natural bread", saved the lives of thousands of starving people.

In the Mulundava region of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, most of the world's breadfruit species are concentrated, and it is the most famous spot for viewing baobab trees.
Plant Form] Deciduous trees. General tree height of about 20m, in the origin of some up to 35m; trunk base expansion, generally 6 to 9m in diameter, individual single plant up to 12m, for the short and stubby trunk. The main trunk is short, palmately compound, set at the ends of branches, leaflets usually 5, entire, rectangular-obovate, petiole 10-20cm long, leaves abaxially sparsely stellate pilose. Flowers large, bisexual, solitary or paired in the leaf axils at the top of branches, pendulous, bracts 2; calyx leathery, 5-parted; petals 5, white and rugose, beautifully fragrant, basally connate, adnate to the base of the staminal tube; stamens numerous, filaments connate into a tube; ovary superior, 5-10(-15) cells, ovules numerous. Fleshy fruit long ellipsoid. Seeds black.
Active ingredients: Baobab trunk leaves contain 13% to 15% protein, 60% to 70% sugar, about 11% cellulose, 16% ash and 4% to 10% oil. The energy value is 11800 to 19000kJ/kg, 80% of which can be used for its own metabolism. The dried leaves are also rich in beta carotene and primary production of vitamin A. The young leaves contain 4% protein and are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C. The leaves of baobab are rich in mineral nutrients such as calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus and zinc. The mature fruits of baobab tree contain an average of 8.7% water, 2.7% protein, 0.2% fat, 73.7% sugar, 8.9% fiber and 5.8% ash, and the pulp is rich in vitamin C, which is almost 10 times the content of oranges. The seeds contain 50% more energy than the leaves, with an energy value of 18030kJ/kg. The seeds contain 33.7% protein, 30.6% fat, 4.8% sugar, 16.9% cellulose and 5.9% ash. The seeds contain vitamin B1 and vitamin C.
Ecological adaptability: Baobab is a temperature-loving tropical tree species that can tolerate a maximum average temperature of 40°C and above, and an extreme minimum temperature of 0°C. Frost has a large impact on the tree, with an annual average temperature of 20-30°C in its natural distribution area. The tree is extremely drought tolerant, with annual precipitation of 300 to 800mm in the suitable area, and poor growth in hot and humid climates or with annual precipitation of 1000mm or more. It is commonly found at altitudes of 450-600m, but at altitudes of 1,000-1,500m in the distribution area of the Chemicalbookseobia and its margins. It is extremely resistant to drought and fire, reducing water consumption by defoliation in the dry season, for example, and the seemingly elephant-bark bark can regenerate after fire damage. Therefore, baobab is not suitable for growing in hot and humid areas with frost and tropical rainforest climate characteristics.

Prospects for product development: Baobab is widely used in food, beverage, medicine, weaving, textile and daily utensils and handicraft products, but its industrial development is still in the initial stage, and the product market is more regional, mainly in tropical African countries and regions, and the added value of the products is not high. In the past 10 years, baobab series products have been developed by Europe and India, and it is expected to take the lead in industrialization in the production of health food, beverage and pharmaceutical products. Baobab is generally used as an ornamental plant in China, and the number is small and scattered, so it does not have the resources for industrial development.
Efficacy: It is used for anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and malaria treatment, with stomachic and choleretic, detoxifying, hemostatic and sedative effects.
