The Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata) is the largest and oldest tree in Barbados, standing 90 ft (28m) tall with a girth of 81 ft (25m). It is estimated to be over one thousand years old. It’s not a native species of Barbados, but originated from Guinea, West Africa. It’s believe that a seed from the Boabab tree floated across the Atlantic and grew on the edge of a lagoon. This area is now Queen’s Park in Bridgetown. The Boabab tree is also known as the “Monkey-bread tree”.
