 Adansonia grandidieri
Family: Malvaceae    (Formerly:Bombacaceae)
Subfamily: Bombacoideae
Grandidier's Baobab, Giant Baobab
Origin: Madagascar
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousEdible

Adansonia grandidieri is a deciduous tree usually growing up to 25 metres tall, though stunted plants in the south of its range are sometimes only 5 metres tall. It has a massive, cylindrical bole that can be 3 - 5 metres in diameter and serves to store water for times of drought; the bole is topped by a sparse, few-branched, flat-topped, light crown.

It provides edible fruits and oil-rich seeds as well as being a source of fibre and material for thatching. Found only in a restricted area of Madagascar, the tree is threatened by habitat destruction and, due to the low numbers of mature specimens, poor regeneration.
