Written by fruit   // 21/02/2006   // 0 Comments

Mike Foale, the author of this 132 page book,has worked throughout the coconut areas of the world since 1958. Mike has documented unique experiences with the coconut and points to the considerable value this plant has, particularly as a food with great potential to improve health, for well into the future.
 
The “grandfather palm” at Mapoon, from the thriving coconut plantation in mission times is featured on page 28. There is discussion on the status of the coconut as an “Australian native plant” in the context of its pan-tropical distribution by the ocean.
 
This book helps present the true value of the coconut, a plant that, through multiple products and uses, adds value to the community and variety to the diet.
