From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Ad·an·so·ni·a n.  Bot. A genus of great trees related to the Bombax.  There are two species, Adansonia digitata, the baobab or monkey-bread of Africa and India, and Adansonia Gregorii, the sour gourd or cream-of-tartar tree of Australia.  Both have a trunk of moderate height, but of enormous diameter, and a wide-spreading head.  The fruit is oblong, and filled with pleasantly acid pulp.  The wood is very soft, and the bark is used by the natives for making ropes and cloth.
