The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is a member of the palm tree family (Arecaceae) and the only living species of the genus Cocos. They are ubiquitous in coastal tropical regions. The coconut tree provides food, fuel, cosmetics, folk medicine and building materials, among many other uses. Coconuts are distinct from other fruits because their endosperm contains a large quantity of clear liquid, called coconut water or coconut juice. The coconut is a very versatile fruit, as its oil, water, milk, and flesh can be used not only in the food industry, but also in the cosmetic and energy industry. Coconut production and export in Ghana have increased significantly over the last few years and most coconuts in Ghana are organic, as most trees grow in the wild. The trees are not treated with pesticides or any other chemical substances.
