The baobab is no ordinary tree. Not only are its fruits packed with nutrients, its seeds also make an exceptional moisturising oil, and trade in its products generates much needed income for rural harvesters across Africa. But if the quality of those products is below par, consumers won’t buy them and the harvesters won’t make any money. Join Gus, the African Plant Hunter, for a behind-the-scenes look at efforts to improve the quality of baobab products on the market. Luckily for him, the session is being held in the spectacular Kenyan coastal town of Kilifi!
