Another Exotic Fruit - Coconut

Coconut is one of the most economically valuable fruits because of various ways of making products out of it. It can be used to make coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream, even the bark can be used as lumber, etc.
For myself one of the most fascinating things is the fact that coconut is a seed. It's the biggest seed there is. And the tree is reproduced inside the coconut itself, so this is one of the reasons that coconut trees are growing all over the world.
A coconut shell would just fall off the tree into the ocean and then would be spread through the water to other places on earth, where it would germinate and grow itself to a new environments as long as the weather is warm.
