The coconut tree was first cultivated by peoples of India or Southeast Asia; emigrants from these countries then introduced the coconut tree to almost everywhere in the tropics of Asia and Oceania. There is no proof of coconuts having grown in America before the arrival of the Spaniards.
The coconut palm tree grows in hot areas. It likes frost-free areas, and grows in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific region. The tree grows near seas in these areas so the roots can find moisture. In the United States it is found only in Hawaii, the Southern tip of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
The coconut palm may reach to 100 feet or more. The leaves are very large, up to 18 feet long, with lanceolate leaflets up to 3 feet long. The fruits are produced in clusters near the growing tip. They vary in shape, but are generally near globose to oblong, up to a foot or more in length. The nut is encased in a thick, fibrous husk, which is persistent and must be cut away to expose the nut. The shell is very hard and woody, near 0.25 inch thick.
