Sri Lanka & Coconut

“Coconut Palms gently swaying in the breeze”. This sentence is synonymous when it comes to describing the tropical Island of Sri Lanka, and when one flies into Sri Lanka the first glimpse are the vast expanse of Coconut trees along the coastline.

 

The scientific name for coconut is Cocos nucifera. Early Spanish explorers called it coco, which means "monkey face" because the three indentations (eyes) on the hairy nut resembles the head and face of a monkey. Nucifera means "nut-bearing". Coconut is the most widely grown plantation crop in Sri Lanka, and one of the three “Cash Crops”.
