If I was to ask you have you ever heard of the Baobab fruit what would you say?
No I had never heard of it before however it is full of so many natural health benefits I’m surprised I haven’t!

In the post to me is some Baobab powder to try in various ways for a week however The Eden Project next week is launching Baobab Week.
Baobab Week from 8th – 13th October
The Eden Project has just launched Project Baobab which aims to let people in the UK know about the virtues of this wonderful African super fruit. You can now buy it from their online shop. http://www.edenproject.com/visit-us/whats-here/plant-a-z/baobab
Visitors can discover more about the African super fruit baobab, see a sapling Baobab tree growing in the Rainforest Biome, learn how to cook with it thanks to ‘The African Chef’ Malcolm Riley, and understand more about the important work Eden is doing to create a sustainable future for farmers in Africa.
For kids, the activities are endless: there are storytelling sessions every day at 12pm and 2pm, kids can climb up to the tropical treetop Rainforest Aerial Walkway and learn why rain forests are so important – and a baobab smoothie will be waiting for them as they thirstily come to the end of the walkway.
Meet the team behind this amazing initiative including those who have travelled over from Africa to explain how baobab has changed their lives for the better.
