Coconut palms grace Creole gardens, main avenues and farming estates, where they are grown in coconut groves. This tropical tree, full of natural resources, is a palm tree that grows in tropical regions, where it can reach up to 30m tall, and bears fruit all year round. A coconut can measure up to 30 centimetres in diameter. The immature fruit is smooth and pale green in colour, turning to orange-brown when the nut is ripe. It is covered with a thick layer of fibres and a shell surrounding the white nut, which can be enjoyed without moderation.
