                       THE COCONUT PALMS AT BARRA LODGE

The origin of the coconut has been lost to history

Coconuts are a prehistoric plant that scientists believecame from the South Pacific

The sailors aboard Vasco de Gama’s ships gave the coconut its name.  They called it “Coco”, named after a grimacing face. When the coco came to England, the suffix of nut was added.

Coconut oils also contain four growth hormones, that help the development of many organisms.Coconut water is considered the father of modern tissue culture science

Coconut water can be used as a substitute for blood plasma

They grow from sandy soils and require an abundant amount of sun and rain

Coconut trees belong to the plant family known as Arecaceae and are the only species of the genus Cocos. They can grow up to 30 meters high

Coconuts are the seeds of the coconut palm tree and considered a type of nut. The meat of the coconut is high in protein whereas the milk is refreshing, light and low in sugar

Aside from their culinary purposes, they are also used for cosmetic purposes and as a mosquito repellent by burning the husks as the smoke repels mosquitos
