Cocos nucifera (species) (Cocos (genus), Arecaceae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Species of tropical tree having a slender, leaning, ringed trunk up to 25 m (80 feet) in height, a crown of large, featherlike leaves, and producing an edible fruit; the species probably originated somewhere in Indo-Malaya. Coconut fruits float readily and have been dispersed widely by ocean currents and by humans throughout the tropics. Marco Polo was among the first Europeans to describe coconuts. Today it is among the most important crops of the tropics. Mature fruits are drupes, not nuts: they are hard, ovoid in shape, and contain a small embryo with abundant endosperm, which comprises the edible meat and liquid that are both edible. In addition, oil derived from it is used in cooking, soaps, and cosmetics. Husks and leaves can be used as material to make shelter and furnishings.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 熱帶喬木物種,其樹幹修長、傾斜、有環紋,高度可達25公尺(80英呎),具有頂蓋般的大型羽狀葉片,結出可食用的果實。本物種很可能起源於印度馬來亞的某處,椰子的果實可很快地漂流、經由海流廣為散佈、也可由人類活動傳佈而遍及熱帶地區。馬可波羅是最早描述椰子的歐洲人之一,椰子現今是熱帶地區最重要的農作物之一,成熟的果實是核果而非堅果:果實堅硬、呈卵圓形、有一個小型胚芽以及豐富的胚乳,包含了可食用的果肉與汁液。此外,來自椰子的油可用於烹調、製作肥皂、以及化妝品,外殼與葉子可作為建造遮蓋物與家具的材料。
