Cocos nucifera

Coconut Palm

Considered the most valuable of fruiting trees in the world, the single species of Coconut Palm provides food for the people of many tropical countries. It can begin producing crops of nuts at the age of five. The crooked or leaning trunk makes it easy to climb. However, since the nuts can fall from the tops of the trees, keep it away from patios and walkways. The male flowers are fragrant, and the female flowers are larger.
