Caption: Germinating coconut palm (Cocos nucifera) on a beach in Barbados. A coconut palm can grow up to 30 metres high and will begin to bear fruit (coconuts) roughly 7 years after germination. Coconuts take between 8 to 10 months to fully ripen. Young, green coconuts contain a nutritious liquid, rich in vitamin C, and a soft, jelly-like flesh, while ripened fruit conatin a thicker liquid (milk) and white, solid flesh that is used in cooking rather than eaten raw.
