Facts About Coconut
Coconuts are not actually nuts at all. They are in fact kernels of a large coconut fruit that can weigh up to 2.5 kilograms. Coconut trees are also quite unusual. Their trunks are only about 30 cm thick in diameter, but the trees can grow up to 30 metres high. They are optimally adapted to tropical conditions. It tends to storm there quite often, which is why the trunks are extremely flexible without breaking.
Almost everything from the coconut is used. The outer shell is often made into shells or works of art, and the fibres on it are spun into mats, nets and ropes. The flesh can either be eaten raw or made into copra - the stuff that is then used to make all the familiar coconut products such as coconut flour, coconut milk, coconut flakes, etc. - and the coconut water from inside the fresh kernel can be drunk.
