Full description:

Morula is a wooden milk pail carved out of wood, originally from the wild plum tree (morua). Morula trees do not grow in the Free State and Lesotho, so once Sotho-speaking people migrated out of the Magaliesberg area and south across the Vaal river, other forms of wood were used, but the name morula was retained.
