The Marula is a deciduous tree native to Southern and Eastern Africa. Found in Africa, it follows the migratory patterns of the Bantu people. The green fruit ripens and turns yellow, the white flesh inside is succulent and has a very distinct flavor. After falling off the tree, the fruit will start to ferment and these draw in animals, like elephants and baboons, for a slightly alcoholic treat. The fruit is also used to make a popular liqueur called Amarula.
