tlc123Tlc123 on 12/24/2008

Trivia Quiz The English name, coconut, comes from the Spanish and Portuguese word 'coco' meaning monkey face.

In Sanskrit the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha, meaning "the tree which gives all that is necessary for living". Nearly every part of the tree can be used from building to medicines, food to matting. It is one of the most important trees on earth and features in ancient myths and legends and plays a leading role in some religious ceremonies.

How much do you know about the coconut? Have fun!

It was Keith Richards, not Ronnie Wood, that fell out of the coconut tree.
