Coco de mer (triple)

Recommended Posts

david100

I have a section from a triple segment coco de mer.

I cannot seem to find anything about it on the internet.

Can anyone help me and point me in the right direction?

Not sure I understand the question. Are you talking about Lodoicea maldivica? A section from a triple segment?

Are you talking about the seed, or another part?  Can you post a photo?

Not only 3-lobed seed, but also »4-lobed and 6-lobed seeds have been recorded.« (J. C. McCurrach 1960: Palms of the World)

Google »lodoicea triple« and you have all information you needed.

Yes, I'm talking about a triple lobed seed.

What is the name? Is it rare?

I have only the informations posted already above (with photo in the article by G. Mazza); also in Genera Palmarum you can read only »one to three 2-lobed, thick, hard pyrenes«, but nothing about how rare the triple one might be. I believe that it doesn’t occur too often. :indifferent:

      This past Sunday, February 17, 2019, the CBS Sunday Morning show did a segment on "The Seychelles' Coco De Mer tree".  The story is entertaining and informative, although palm aficionados may be disappointed that neither the word "palm" nor the botanical name, Lodoicea maldivica, are mentioned.

      Still sorting out my 8000+ photos of the 2016 Biennial and Post-Biennial. Both trips were a perfect mix of cultivated palms and palms in habitat. I had a great time, so a big thank you  to everyone who organised and attended the trips! One of the higlights was of course the iconic Double Coconut with leaves up to 10 m2 growing in the botanic gardens of Singapore and Darwin. An amazing palm considering the poor conditions in which it grows in the Seychelles.
