Dear Rashidaji and Barry,
Very interesting discussions on Adansonia.
I would also like to add 2 points which I think can be useful:
1.  In Mandu, Madyapradesh one can find many Adansonia in the forest around a fort.  Locals use ripe fruits to make a delicious juice.
2.  Some time ago, I had come across news on the shifting of Adansonia in Australia.  Details are as under.

This handout photo from Prospero Productions, taken on July 14, 2008 and received July 20, 2008 shows a boab tree being transported on the back of a truck, somewhere between Kununurra and Broome, from its home in the remote northern Kimberley district of Western Australia state. Australian Aboriginals replanted the ancient boab tree on July 20, 2008 in Perth after it was driven thousands of kilometres with a police escort to save it from destruction. Photo courtesy AFP.

In my earlier post I had placed a picture of baobab, but it did not come here, do not, why?

Thank you Naresh. No wonder the Residency compound in Indore has so many trees.
It is also home to grey hornbill.
