Coconut is (Cocos nucifera Linn.) the most important perennial fruit plant in the world belonging to the family Arecaceae (Palmaceae). Coconut palms are successfully grown in the tropics and hence referred to as âKing of the tropical palmsâ. The South Pacific and South Africa are often cited as the possible centre of origin. The importance of the palm lies in fact that not only does it supply food, drink and shelter but it also provides raw materials for a number of industries. Coconut is one of the important nut crops in Bangladesh. Its production in Bangladesh is 907255 Metric tons from 12825 acres of land in 2004-2005. It is mostly grown in the southern part of the country.
