Adansonia digitata - African Baobab Tree.

Baobab in full leaf

You are bidding for a packet of 5 fresh seeds.

The African Baobab is a fascinating plant with a myriad of common names.

  • Upside Down Tree - due to the way it's thickened, sparsely leaved branches look like roots.


  • Monkey Bread - Due to the edible coating of the seeds which many animals find irresistible.


  • The Tree of Life - referring to it's ability to grow and thrive in conditions that no other tree could, a name immortalised by Disney in The Lion King.


Easy to grow and care for, these plants will make fascinating specimens wherever they are grown. Although not particularly noted for their flowers, these are large, showy and scented. They are followed by large fruits, rich in vitamin C.

Baobab Flower

They are not hardy so will have to be treated as house plants, although they can be placed outside in summer to take advantage of the extra light. Baobab's are known to live for 100's of years, with some known to be over 1000 years old. Initially fast from seed (see image), they form a swollen trunk in the second year onwards. Later growth is somewhat slower.

Year Old Seedlings

These make ideal specimens for Bonsai as they are naturally slow growing and have an almost alien look about them.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me using one of the contact forms on the auction page and I will be happy to provide extra details you require.


Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

See the payment section for the most current details of my combined postage rates.  Please note that I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined, there are no exceptions to this as each individual payment incurs its own charge.

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.
