African Doum Palm (Hyphaene thebaica)
Tree, deciduous broadleaf
   
Origin : Northern and North-Eastern Africa
Environment : open savannah, near coasts, along streams in arid inland
Climate : hot, warm; dry; highly salt– and draught-resistant

African names : Mkoma, Mkoche (Swahili), Eng’oli (Turkana), Mlala (Giriama)

Notes :
Also known as Gingerbread Palm, it is one of the very few truly branching palms. It can even grow in arid areas near deserts, as long as there are sub-surface waters that it’s deeply penetrating roots can reach. It is a landmark of Eastern Africa bushland savannah, where it often appears mixed with flat-top acacias, and is heavily browsed by elephants. It was revered by early Egyptians and often depicted on their frescoes. Seeds have been found in Pharaos’ tombs.
