It supposed to be very tall as all the other coconut trees along the beach. Since we planted it in a small box due to lack of space, this coconut trees officially became our first bonsai tree. As all other bonsai, the tree became smaller in size and shorter as if it was a three year coconut tree.
There are two types of coconut trees. Three year coconut trees, are trees that bear fruit in approximately three years.
Then there is the six years coconut tree, which produces fruit in about six years. You can easily distinguish between the two as the six years coconut tree is taller and bigger in size. So...my coconut tree was a six years coconut. It produce lots of fruits. Its sweet water and soft jelly like flesh was my favourite especially for breakfasting in Ramadhan.
Unfortunately...we had to cut down the tree since its massive leaves kept on disturbing our astro channel. Something to do with the waves around the astro receiver on top of our roof. Again another my favourite tree being sacrificed.
|Sad to see all the wastage.|
|Anyhow, we did enjoy the coconut water and the white jelly |
flesh for the last time from this coconut bonsai.
