Kerala, a southern state of India on its western coast got its name from the Coconut tree ("Keram" in local language).. The land is fringed with unending rows of coconut trees along its coastal plains spread between its numerous backwaters and other water bodies which is beautiful sight. With coconut trees filled all around along its paddy fields and other water bodies, Kerala looks so green and beautiful whole year round. Coconut trees are said to be so valuable as no part of it is wasted.
Apart from the nuts used for extracting oil or for cooking, the husk of the nuts are the raw material for coir which is used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes, mattresses etc .. Its leaves were dried n woven which were widely used on roofing homes until recently ( even now in low income housings)are the favorite food of elephants (wild or tamed). Coconut tree;s wood is used to make furniture or buildings, and the dry leaves are still used at village homes for cooking...
