8 Fun Facts About Coconuts

  1. 1. Listen up all you coconut lovers! 8 FUN FACTS ABOUT COCONUTS
  2. 2. 1. Monkeys are trained to harvest coconuts. • Since coconut farmers don’t want to risk their lives by cimbing coconut trees, they train monkeys to do it for them instead. Some farmers control the monkeys with a long leash, while other farmers can simply use their voice to keep them in line.
  3. 3. 2. Coconuts are used for artistic purposes. • Coconuts have been used as a medium for sculptures that are both intricate and simple. The unique look and feel of coconut art makes it a lovely, cultural addition to any home. Coconut shells, with their interesting texture, also make a great canvas for festive paintings.
  4. 4. 3. Portuguese sailors helped name the coconut. • During the 16th century, Portuguese sailers thought the three holes in coconut shells looked like the human face. Thus, they thought of the name coco meaning “grinning face, grin, or grimace.” When the coconut was introduced to England, the suffix “nut” was added, and that’s how the name came to be.
  5. 5. 4. Coconuts have many health benefits. • Coconut meat (the white, fleshy part) not only has a high fiber content, which makes you feel full longer and helps with digestion, but it also offers high levels of manganese, potassium, and phosphorous. • Coconut meat is also comprised of natural fats and oils that are actually quite healthy. They contain medium- chain fatty acids that help enhance immunity.
  6. 6. 5. Coconut water can be substituted for blood plasma. • Since cococut water contains good levels of susgar, dietary fiber, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, it can be used as a short-term substitute for human blood plasma. • In fact, there’s been one documented case of a cocnut IV being used to treat an extremely dehydrated patient in the Solomon Islands.
  7. 7. 6. Practically every part of the coconut has a use. • The rough exterior shell of the coconut can be used to make ropes, mats, brushes, and sacks. Dried coconut meat can be used to produce coconut oil, which is used for cooking and cosmetic purposes. Coconut leaves can be used to make baskets, brooms, and roofing materials. The possibilities are endless.
  8. 8. 7. A coconut is a drupe, not a nut. • Even though the word “nut” is in coconut, coconuts are technically not nuts. They are actually drupes, which are fleshy fruits with thin skin and a central stone containing the seed. Peaches, plums, and cherries are other examples of drupes.
  9. 9. 8. Flower buds from the coconut palm tree also serve a purpose. • By picking the flower buds from coconut trees and cutting them in a strategic way, coconut farmers have been able to extract the sap from the bud and use it to make coconut palm sugar. • This sugar is made by heating the sap in order to evaporate water and thicken it iup. Once it’s been through the heating process, it is then crystalized and turned into sugar. • Coconut palm sugar is becoming increasingly popular because it has a low glycemic index, which means it won’t spike your blood sugar.
