The baobab's fruit is 6 to 8 inches or 15 to 20 centimeters long. It contains 50% more calcium than spinach, is high in antioxidants, and has three times the vitamin C of an orange. It is sometimes called a super fruit .The leaves can be eaten as relish. The dry pulp is either eaten fresh or dissolved in milk or water to make a refreshing drink. Young fresh leaves are cooked in a sauce, and sometimes are dried and powdered.

The enormous, crinkled white flowers last only a single day, and are pollinated by fruit bats. In time, the flowers are followed by woody seed pods, with a greyish green furry coating.

Kalpavriksha (Devanagari: कल्पवृक्ष), also known as kalpataru, kalpadruma, kalpapādapa and Tree of Life.

English common names include baobab, monkey-bread tree (the soft, dry fruit is edible), upside-down tree (the sparse branches resemble roots) and cream of tartar tree.This can be quite a curious site, resembling rats hanging by their tails from the tree, giving rise to another nickname for the tree: "dead rat tree".
