Coconut Palm Tree

Cocos nucifera

Coconut palm is the most recognizable palm in the world. This tree grows 60-100 feet tall and 20-30 feet wide with huge leaves to 15 feet long. Coconut fruits hang in clusters under and among leaf bases. Immature fruits range in color from green to yellow or red, but all eventually turn brown. This palm is extremely drought-tolerant and can withstand salty soils.

It's a versatile plant used to make copra (coconut meat), coconut oil, coir (a material often added to potting mixes), and coconut milk.
