Marula tree...

Marula tree is mainly found in Africa and this tree is a special tree because of what is derived from it.It is found in South Africa though Ethiopia has a range of it as well.Marula grows up to 20 meters, it produces Flowers from September to November and fruits from January to March.

The fruit is high in Vitamin C.

Medicinal factors of the Marula tree...

The bark of the Marula tree can be used to treat dysentery and diarrhoea.

If this bark is infused in brandy,it can be used as a prophylactic to treat Malaria.

The inner bark is used to treat insect bites and irritations caused by hairy caterpillars.

The leaves of Marula treat has their own medicinal factors because the essence made from them is used to treat burns.

Marula tree is a unique plant. Its fruit contains three edible nuts. These nuts are essential to mankind because.

1.Oil for cosmetic use are derived from them.

2. The fruit skin can be burnt and used as coffee substitute.

But the fascinating thing about this plant is the rich cream that is derived from it...

It is called AMARULA.

You are missing out...

The Marula tree is locally called the Elephant tree.Amarula is produced from this tree,this super cream liqueur is a product of South Africa,was lunched in 1983 and was first marketed as a liqueur in 1989,it won gold medal at the 2006 San Francisco World Spirit's Competition.

I first had a taste of this great cream in the year 2000 and ever since then,I've not let go of this great sugar,cream and marula fruit combination.

Let me tell you this fact.

Elephant associates with this great cream because it is the king of the Animals, it likes eating the marula fruits.As a matter of fact, the fermented fruit is its favorite and it makes the king feel tipsy.

Amarula can be found world wide so if you want to feel the taste of Africa while outside its shores,simply go and buy a bottle of Amarula...

Best serve Chilled!!

There are so many other great creams,wines and liqueur but i bet you,none is packaged like the king,you can get the plain bottle in two different sizes and also the king packed Amarula.It is a gift you can give a Princess.

Amarula...Simply the best!

      It's a great tree with lots of benefits. I like the Amarula, it looks like Bailey's or Irish Cream. (nice)

      Is it possible to bring back the fruits of Marula from South Africa or Ethiopia and plant it in another country?

      Regards. :)
