Coconut Palms are believed to have originated in southeast Asia and are probably the best known palms in the world, the coconut being a symbol of all things tropical. Mature coconuts can reach heights of up to 100 feet, with a trunk that is characteristically slim, often leaning, solitary, and ringed with scars from previous growth. Its fruit is oval, generally large, and in early stages of ripening is yellow to green. The coconuts themselves turn dry and brown upon ripening fully. There is an old Hawaiian belief that coconuts have eyes so they can see where they fall and so never fall on anyone.
