Coconuts are a prehistoric plant that scientists believe either came from the South Pacific around what is now New Guinea. Because of their water resistance, coconuts were able to stay afloat over the ocean. They can be found all over the Pacific, the Indian Ocean regions and Africa. In later years, sailors and explorers spread the growth of coconuts even farther by taking the seed (yes, it is a seed – not a fruit or a nut) with them for food. The sailors aboard Vasco de Gama’s ships gave the coconut its name. They called it “Coco”, named after a grimacing face or hobgoblin. The brown, hairy husk and three face-like dimples made them think the seed looked like a sort of spirit. When the “coco” came to England, the suffix of nut was added and that’s how the name came about.
