Following up on my previous post, “Do coconuts grow in Florida?,” I found this rather fabulous article about coconuts and how they were able to develop a home in South Florida (and other places, including Hawaii) despite not being indiginous… and omg how I love anything and everything that’s coconutty!!
The article is far from being nutty though as it was published by Scientific American, which means it’s actually quite schololarly. Research going into uncovering such a mystery is quite impressive and it’s comforting to know that I’m not alone in my minor obsession with coconuts. Read the full article here: “Coconuts: not indigenous, but quite at home nevertheless”
And, as a bonus here is probably one of the most annoying songs ever recorded about coconuts. I dare you to watch the whole thing without going mad!
