Baobab
Adansonia digitata

We have an ocean crosser, 4 years from East Africa, into the South Atlantic, and then the North Atlantic...
provided it didn't come from an exotic planting somewhere in Florida!

Ed Perry found this seed washed ashore in the Sebastian Inlet area, along the central eastern coast of Florida (USA). Oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer states: "Ed Perry’s report is the first I know of for a natural drifter from the Indian Ocean to into the North Atlantic Ocean."




Ruler hash marks are 1/16 inch.
Seed is slightly greater than 3/8 inch wide.
