Coconut is the most extensively grown and used nut in the world and the most important palm. It is an important commercial crop in many tropical countries, contributing significantly to their economies. The chief product is copra, the source of coconut oil used for making soap, cooking oils and margarine. Much of the fruit is consumed locally for food.
