The baobab fruit is slowly reaching Western markets

This fruit comes from the most emblematic tree in Africa. And it's taking off as a superfood in Western markets.

    Same a Krill then. Make it a cash crop at the expense of the rest of nature.

    Boabab trees are also found in northwest Australia; wasn't aware they could be eaten; Australian seeds do not appear as large as African.

    This fruit is not something new.. In India we have been using this since a long time.. and people use it in some specific festivals. It is a very good source of protein and also when it is ripened it's taste is amazing .

    Maybe now the Baob tree can be protected, only the other day I heard they were dying off?? But big companies are not always a good thing... exploitation looms!

    Mazhakata is "monkey bread". Mauyu is the baobab. They come from two completely different trees. The flower of a boabab tree is spectacular. This fruit of the boabab tree is so high in acid that it bluntens the teeth. Even the seed is edible and has a coconut like white inner. Monkey bread is flat long and has fewer seeds that have a stretched oval shape and are extremely hard.
