These baobab blossoms are delicious.

Ono, The Kupatana Celebration

Baobabs are a type of fruit that grow in the Pride Lands, found on Baobab trees. They have a variety of uses in the lands.


When the flowers of the baobab tree bloom, the Pride Landers know this as a time called Kupatana. They celebrate it by gathering together in peace.

The baobab fruit is also used to play a game known as Baobab Ball, in addition to being a food source. They are also used as paints.
