Coconut Cocos nucifera
A member of the palm tree family, coconuts are different from most fruits in the way their hard shells contain a large amount of 'water'.
The plant is incredibly versatile with almost every part used for either nourishment or practical applications.
Virgin coconut oil has rightly been heralded for its health properties - due to being rich in lauric acid and medium chain fatty acids which are easily digested.
The incredible nutrients and high smoke point of coconut oil make it ideal for cooking.
