Cocos nucifera a tall and stately palm growing to a height of 50-60ft. or maore when fully mature, bearing a crown of large, pinnate leaves. The trunk is stout (1-1½ft. diam.), straight or gently curved, rising from a swoolen base surrounded by mass or roots; rarely branched, it is marked by ringlike leaf scars which are not prominent. The leaves are 6-18 ft. long, pinnatisect; leaflets, 2-3ft. long, narrow and tapering. In the axil of each leaf is a spathe enclosing a apadix, 4-6ft. long, stout, straw or orange coloured, and simply branched.
The palm is monoecious. The female flowers are relatively few, 1 in. long and globose, borne at the base of the panicle. The male flowers are numerous, small and sweet-scented, borne towars the top of the panicle. The fruit is ovoid, three-angled, 6-12 in. long, containing a single seed.
