Caption
Région de la Donga, Bénin. L'arbre à karité. Les fleurs de karité sont odorantes et mellifères. L'arbre ne fleurit qu'au bout de 15 ans et produit alors des fruits verts/marrons annuellement sur une durée de cent à deux cents ans environ. Un arbre à karité peut vivre jusqu'à trois cents ans. C'est entre 20 et 30 d'âge que l'arbre commence ça pleine production de fruits, en moyenne 20 kg de fruits frais par arbre. Ce qui fait à peu près 6 kg d'amandes sèches, de quoi faire 2 kg de beurre de karité. Donga region, Benin. The shea tree. The flowers of the shea tree are smelly and honey-yielding.
