Coconut Palm tree
The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is the only living species of the genus Cocos and a member of the palm tree family (Arecaceae). The term “coconut” (or the archaic “cocoanut”) refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which is a drupe, not a nut, according to botanical classification. The name is derived from the old Portuguese word coco, which means “head” or “skull,” and refers to the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features. They are a cultural icon of the tropics and are common in coastal tropical regions.
Leaves of coconut tree
Coconut leaves were used as a roofing material for houses in India and are also used to wrap rice, cook with, and store in the Philippines. They have been used to make toys in India, as well as brooms and lime when burned to ash.
