Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Sexy coconut

Happy World Coconut Day! Well, one could say every day is ‘Coconut Day’ in the Maldives. It is the national tree and definitely considered the most valuable vegetation grown there…

A coconut tree is also included in the country’s national emblem or coat of arms. Coconut trees are grown on all the islands. Before modern construction methods were introduced to the Maldives, coconut leaves were used as a roofing material for many houses in the islands while coconut timber was used to build houses and boats… Green coconut fruit strands on the tree are featured on each Maldivian rufiyaa banknote.” – Wikipedia

The day celebrates all the magical qualities of this tropical nut. I came across the texting humour above in Buzzfeed last week which made me smile. But if you really want to feel ‘dumb’ underestimating the sex appeal of the Cocos nucifera, count on the Maldives to make even the humble coconut more alluring…
