Germination: Seeds are best sown in spring and summer in a well-drained seedling mixture containing one-third sand. Cover the seed with sand to a depth of 4-6 mm, place the trays in a warm semi-shaded position and water regularly until the seeds have all germinated. Germination may take from two to six weeks.

The African Baobab is one of the world's most unique and iconic trees, producing an enormous, thick, swollen trunk that can reach up to 28 m 92 ft. in circumference and a broad, spreading crown that stands bare during the dry season.
Its large, fragrant white flowers, after pollination by bats, are followed by large, rounded, woody fruit with powdery flesh that is traditionally used to make a lemonade-like drink.
In cultivation it is best suited to the drier tropics.
