What big nuts ! Dont sleep under the coconut tree

Heres a nice picture of Nagua on the North coast of the Dominican Republic where its almost impossible to avoid a coconut tree not the idea place for a hammock.

Did you know that coconut water can be used instead of blood plasma in an emergy due to it being sterile and the ideal ph ?

The coconut is the largest seed on the planet !Stuck on a desert island without a toothbrush?

Stuck on a desert island without a toothbrush?Take a piece of coconut root about 3 inches long and flay it on a stone. This makes an acceptable toothbrush.

Coconuts annually kill more people than sharks! Every year there are more than 150 coconut related deaths.

The coconut most likely originated around New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean, but long ago became distributed throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

The wood from the coconut palm is known as Porcupine Wood. It is very hard dense wood and is used to make furniture.

Waving a flag made of his own clothes, a tsunami victim dressed only in his underwear was rescued after surviving alone for 25 days on a flattened island in India’s Andaman and Nicobar archipelago. Officials on Campbell Bay Island reported that a Nicobarese man named Michael Mangal had been spotted on deserted Pillow Panja island on January 19th. Mangal was sucked into the sea when the first tsunami wave stuck, but an even bigger wave dumped him back on the shore. However, he found that no one else from his village had survived. Injured and desperate he survived the next 25 days only on coconuts before being rescued.
There are more than 20 billion coconuts produced each year.Coconut juice or coconut water is the liquid inside a coconut. Coconut milk is produced by steeping grated coconut in hot water then straining; coconut cream is coconut milk cooked down until it thickens, or grated coconut steeped in hot milk instead of water.
Errrrr you can eat them as well
