HISTORY OF THE BOAB TREE
The first boab tree was discovered in Australia back in the early nineteenth century, by an explorer named Phillip Parker King. Over the years, boab tree became a symbol for Kimberley area of North Western Australia, where it is found in abundance.
The boab (Adansonia gregorii) is a native to Western Australia, but is related to the broader group of species called boababs that live in Madagascar and Africa. Boabs are also called bottle trees, the tree of life, boababs and Australian boababs
There are nine different varieties of Boabs in the world, most of them are found in Madagascar while the rest are found on mainland Africa and the western edge of the middle east.
Australia has only one, the Adansonia gregorii. Scientists are not completely sure, but the majority of them believe that people moving out of Africa carried the tree's seeds as a valuable food source, therefore introduced the boab to Australia. The alternative theory is that the Boab nuts arrived on ocean currents from Africa.
THE USE OF BOAB TREE BY THE INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY
The indigenous community of Australia has been making use of Boab trees for thousands of years. They utilized the tree to provide them with food, fibre and shelter. The Boab tree also served as a paramount resource for medicines. We are thrilled that members of nearby indigenous communities have been actively involved with us in the process of developing boab coffee and have collaborated immensely in our journey.
