I was very excited about a month ago when my young coconut tree that I planted 3 years ago had its first flowers on it, its was about 3 years old when I bought it and it really has grown tremendously well, despite endlessly getting attacked by the horrible rhino bug.
I took the photo yesterday morning when it opened up overnight, it's got 5 coconuts on it, and it's the start of many many more to come. The other older coconut tree that I have left in the garden can produce well over a 100 a year. The variety is called Hom in Thailand, meaning fragrant.. the water is sweet and fragrant, best when the coconut is still green and chilled. The inside is soft and can be eaten with a spoon.
Just thought I'd share this with you, hope you like it 😊
