A Coconut Story
Quite regularly people ask us:
“What else is produced in the Maldives apart from coconuts?”
Without diving deeper into the variety of fruits and vegetables that grow on local islands, we’d like to share our love for coconuts with you. This so-called “tree of life” is deserving of its name for the sole reason that there is a use for every part of the tree. The tree provides food, cosmetics, building material and so much more.
In the upcoming 5 articles we will provide a greater understanding of palm trees, the coconut fruit, the 12 stages of coconut development and use in Maldivian cuisine, other uses, proverbs and a piece of history.
After reading the articles, you will understand our response:
“What more than coconuts do we need?”
