Fosberg, F.R. et al. (1977) Adansonia ser. 2 17: 27.
Usually flowers and fruits as a shrub 1.5-3 m tall.
Cotyledons elliptic, about 30 x 15 mm, +/- sessile. Base obtuse to cuneate. First pair of leaves glabrous. At the tenth leaf stage: all parts of the seedling completely glabrous. Leaf blade narrowly obovate to elliptic, apex shortly acuminate, base attenuate. Leaf blade and petiole produce a rapid, copious milky exudate when cut or broken. Midrib raised on the upper surface of the leaf blade. Lateral veins about 15-20 on each side of the midrib, veins forming loops just inside the blade margin. Short greenish-brown glandular (?) bristles visible between the petiole and the stem. Seed germination time 182 days.
