The main economic products derived from the coconut palm are the fruits or nuts, the copra, which is the dried solid endosperm of meat of the nut, the edible oil extracted from the copra, and desiccated coconut for which the endosperm is ground before drying.

Silent witnesses of long forgotten adventures and conquest, the coconut palm trees are as much part of the islands as they are part of the Polynesian myth.

Andy, My palm is growing and a new frond has grown too (but it has a little brown in the tip).

The coconut is seldom or ever planted for its ecological roles, yet, because of the vast areas of the tropics covered by coconut plantations, the coconut does play an important part ecologically.
