Going closer meant losing some part of the tree.
The twins look magnificent don’t you think??
So here is the Baobab that is called Adansonia digitata and belongs the Bombacaeae family. It is native to Africa and has been introduced to India hundreds of years ago. In fact, it seems to be quite happy here considering that it flowers and fruits happily. It can be easily identified by its palmate leaves and its huge trunk. The trunk is said to store water. In the above photo, the white flowers are of the Plumeria though the Baobab also bears white flowers.
I have seen this species at four other places in Pune and this was a new find for me! This is also my third Baobab post on my blog!
