More Information

The coconut tree - cocos nucifera, is a large palm growing up to 30m with large leaves leaving the trunk smooth. A tall coconut palm tree can yield up to 40 fruits per year. Botanically, the coconut fruit is a drupe, not a tree nut.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has reported that coconut palm products are the single most sustainable crop in the world.

Coconut palm tree trunks and leaves serve as building material for farmers homes and produce fruit all year around. Coconut husk and shells can be used for fuel and are a source of charcoal. The roots are used as a dye, a mouthwash and a remedy for diarrhea and dysentery.

Coconut trees can coexist other crops providing shade and humidity and shade conditions for other farm species. Farmers can decide which coconut trees will be used for coconuts and which for tapping for sap to be used for coconut sugar and coconut nectar. Normally, a family will tap trees closer to their homes which are to be harvested twice a day.
