    Coconuts

    Notice India or someplace is farming more coconuts due to world shortage of derivatives,oil etc.

    Methinks perhaps a good time to plant...?

    Bit of investigation as to proper management could reap rewards in someone else's life time maybe.
    We have maybe 25 odd 6yo trees which seem to grow so frickin slowly doubt I will see any fruit before they can use me as fertilizer?

    Lot of plantations around phetchaburi etc, many look derelict.
    Might be a return per meter issue?

    How large the plantations...??
    20 rai.....30 rai?

    I've seen this seeming situation before in many locales.
    Probably not derelict or abandoned, but neglected.

    Mind you, even what appears to be mismanaged - still very marketable.

    Can anyone advise the length of years for a coconut to mature and bear fruit?

    Coconut is said to be a good farming choice and actually promoted over here in Phils...

    Make Lambanog from Sap when young, with rest of Sap make sugar for diabetics...

    The coconut tree gives about 45 nuts a year, with some fertilizer you can get over 100 !

    See Kinetics Philippines Inc.

    Lots of derivated products then, takes time to grow, but once up, little work.

    Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines moved about 28'000'000 trees like toothpicks... Thailand has less severe weather...

    If you google coconut Philippines, many valuable info in english...
    Monday,Tuesday, then it goes WTF !
