Coconut palm tree is an important tree as all its parts provide several materials which are useful in daily life. In many tropical and subtropical countries, the coconut tree is called the ‘tree of life’ due to its utility. Coconut palm trees are cultivated as plantations. Coconut and its products such as copra, milk, oil, etc. are used in a variety of end-uses, such as cooking, hair and skin treatment, cosmetics, as well as folk medicines. The most important part of coconut tree is its fruit, i.e., coconut, from which the oil-bearing edible part (or meat) is obtained. When the fresh meat is dried (by various methods including sun drying), it is called as copra. Other parts of the fruit and tree are also used to make several environmentally friendly products.
