Native to Africa, Shea trees bear fruit once annually after they are approximately 20 years old. The fruit of the shea tree is also referred to as a nut. Africans have traditionally referred to the trees as Gods gift to Africa because of their long, 300-year lifespan and the rich, highly nourishing butter that they yield.

Comments: This is ok. I should have read the description more accurately because I prefer Unrefined Shea Butter. This Unrefined Shea Butter is white and has no scent. It melted very nicely, and I like how it is packaged in the larger tubs.
