Adansonia digitata, the baobab, is the most widespread tree species of the genus Adansonia, the baobabs, and belong to the mallow family (Malvaceae).
Baobabs are native to the African continent but have been widely distributed by humans. Arab merchants traded the fruit on Egyptian markets and further East.
The trees are said to be found in countries as far as Vietnam and Indonesia.
The tree was introduced to the Caribbean due to the slave trade, a dark and inhumane distribution factor.
The original botanical illustration featured on the magnets was done by Etienne Denisse and published in the lavishly-illustrated Flore d’Amérique (1843-46).
Etienne Denisse (1785 – 1861) was a lithographer for the French royal court and spent his early career at the botanical garden of the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris.
He was soon employed by the French government to work in the French West Indies where he spent years illustrating and collecting plants from the region and sending specimens back to France.
