Marula fruit - African booze tree.
Watch the elephants knock the fruit out of the tree and all the animals eat it off the ground. This is a real video from a documentary about Africa. The video is funny. These are trees that grow in Africa which, once a year, produce very juicy fruit that contain a high percentage of alcohol. The tree is known as the "Elephant Tree," because elephants have a fondness for the fruit. As soon as the fruits are ripe, animals come there to help relieve themselves of the heat. You will easily know who had over-indulged.
The tree is the Marula tree. You can buy a great liqueur named "Amarula," which is made with the fruit and cream.
