Fun Facts

When dried, the coconut flesh is called copra. It takes around 6000 fully grown coconuts to produce 1000 kg of Copra.

A coconut is a fruit (drupe) and not a nut at all.

The novelty song "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts" was composed by Fred Heatherton in 1944 and was never sung by Monty Python!

Coconuts are also used in cosmetics for skin care.
