The coconut tree, cocos nucifera, world’s one of the top 10 most economically useful trees, grows best where the mean average temperature, with no vigorous seasonal variation, is above 22°C and the annual rainfall is in excess of 102 cm. The tropical tree, cultivated mostly in Asia, is known for its oil enriched, nutritious, delicious fruit, eaten raw or prepared into candies or shredded into pastries. The coconut fruit is too much enjoyed, the green fruit for its watery liquid and the matured fruit for its milk juice, especially the soft jellylike flesh of immature coconut fruit can be eaten with a spoon. Also the sugary sap collected from cut and unopened flower clusters can be served as a fresh beverage, while the dried white oily part of the ripe fruits is the valuable source of edible oil, distinguished by excessive lauric acid content and medium chain triglycerides.
