The Amazing, Almost Unbelievable, Story of the Coconut Palm.

The coconut palm is beautiful, iconic, useful and deeply connected with many cultures. Palm expert John Stallman guides us on the epic journey of the modern coconut palm, from its earliest record in India and Asia, to recent genetic studies and a spectacular shipwreck. The coconut palm has accompanied human migration across the globe and journeyed across oceans, earning the nickname of “the most useful tree on earth.”
