Dr Mike Foale gave a very interesting talk on the Coconut palm. Something of interest to the Californians would have been the Hainan coconuts that survive very low temps. If you get a hold of those selections you might get a better chance of growing Cocos nucifera.

I was disappointed on the origin of this palm tree. Hoping it to be a clear cut North Queensland native, it turns out there is nothing clear about it's origins, too little data to work from and the nuts float all over the place as we know.

Mike is the author of "The coconut odyssey : the bounteous possibilities of the tree of life", he has spent more than 40 years researching coconut industry in the Solomon Islands and the South Pacific. This publication "The Cococnut Odyssey" describes how the coconut has unique properties that provide for health, food and the environment.

He has even invented this cool device for splitting coconuts.

Once again I won't be able to make the meeting, mid week in Brisbane is out for me these days. Could someone please give a report on the night here on palmtalk, I am certain a report on any talk on Madagascar by Phil would be greatly received by the rest of the world. Someone will have to borrow his slide show of pics too, I'm sure Phil won't mind..

Please can you organise this guys.

Thanks in advance.. :)
