More information

The marula is a beautiful tree with a single trunk and a wide crown of leaves.

It reaches about twenty meters high.

Its range is similar to the Bantu people who in all likelihood favored its dispersal in southern and eastern Africa.

The fruits are yellow when ripe and the flesh is white, they contain a large nut with a thick endocarp.

Small local rodents are very fond of these delicate-tasting nuts.

The marula has several other names depending on the region: Morula, cider tree, plum marule or even maroela.

Its importance in the economy and culture in Southern Africa is considerable.

The pulp is used to make a local low-alcohol beer, and marula oil is used on the skin to moisturize or as an edible oil by the San people.

Elephants, baboons, ostriches, giraffes know marulas well, they stand under them when the fruits are ripe in order to eat them and they are then often drunk like moose in Scandinavia with apples in autumn.
