photoblog image Flowering Coconut

Flowering Coconut

Our two years old coconut trees have begun to flower. They are a bit young for this, but it might indicate they will be enthusiastic  fruit trees in coming years.

 

The backdrop to this flower is the "fabric" the tree produces as a sheath for emerging fronds.

thank you for sharing the young coconut tree shots, Ray. i like the fresh greens on this.
Ray: The flowers and their stems are quite attractive, Ayush.
What a lovely image, Ray! How exciting - fresh coconut!
Ray: Coconut directly from the tree is one of the great tastes, Elizabeth.
I can imagine that with every passing year, Ray, YOU will be the enthusiastic one!
Ray: One of the few things I would queue for is a fresh coconut, Ginnie.

I can image your thrill that it blooms. A little ant is inspecting the flowers too...
I know you will keep a good eye on the tree: 'touch and your dead'.. wink
Ray: We have 7 new coconut trees in the house yard, Astrid, so we should have plenty of fresh coconuts once they start bearing...each tree can produce over 100 coconuts each year.

Your estate sounds like it is going to provide plenty of food for you and your family in your dotage.
Ray: We are hoping this is so, Alan. Na has just spent a few days planting her annual onion crop, and I have just begun the corn garden. Its all happening...

Bonne journée
Ray: De rien, Claudine. J'aime aussi apprendre de mes amis Web.

It looks as if the flowers are laid out on a woven basket.
Ray: It was that "woven" backdrop that made me reach for the camera, Louis.

I never saw a flowering coconut, but I love coconuts. The trees are very useful.
Ray: We have 7 or 8 young trees in our houseyard, Philine, and this morning Na and I purchased 6 more to grown on the bank of a pond at our farm...you cannot have too many!
Coconut matting
Ray: Very good, Bill.

Again - I have never seen such a flower
Ray: Coconut trees are lovely things to have in our garden, Lisl...productive and attractive.
How exciting this is for you.
Ray: It is so, Mary...we have not had home-grown coconuts since our mature tree was killed last year by lightning.
Nice lot of detail once again Ray.
Ray: I am pleased you think so, Brian...the beauty is in the detail in this case.
I don't think I've seen a picture of such a flower before!
Ray: Stick with me, Tom...and I'll show you some unusual stuff! smile
I didn't know coconut trees even had flowers...
Ray: Just wait until this is yur final question in the Million Dollar Quiz Show, Larry...you will slay 'em! smile
