Baobab flower and fruit at Dempsey

Postby angieng » Mon May 27, 2013 10:12 pm

Hi , have finally figured how to post this.
At Dempsey, this baobab has only one flower and one fruit. First time seeing it.
Girth of trunk less than a metre, a young small tree, in front of Dome.
Cheers!

Oooopps!! the baobab 'fruit' has flowered, while the open white flower is developing into a small fruit, hidden under the thick leathery curled up sepals!
Hope this will mature into a good sized fruit.
