Abstract : Whether a symbol of the South Seas or a dream of tropical holidays, the coconut palm is first and foremost a plant grown and also consumed by millions of farmers and gardeners. Thirty-four varieties from eighteen different countries are depicted with a plate of exquisite photographs and a one-page text describing their main uses and agronomic traits. This booK also explains the botany and history of the coconut palm, and describes the ethnology of those who cultivate it. Many weird and wonderful anecdotes about this mythical palm have come down to us over the centuries...
