Nothing says “beach, please” like the Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera, Tree of life, Tree of heaven, Tree of abundance, and Kalpavriksha). No one knows exactly where the coconut tree originated. There are coconut palm fossils in nearly every subtropical climate, dating back millions of years ago. Coconuts traveled the world at a leisurely pace, bobbing from continent to continent — occasionally with the helping hand of people from ancient civilizations. Now, you can find coconut fruit in some form in every grocery store. That’s no small feat for most living things. 

Growing a coconut is effortless in any subtropical-tropical climate where it’s humid, hot, and sunny. Cocos nucifera needs little in the way of care. Just like the laziest of beach bums, a coconut palm simply wants for long days in the sun.
