Short coconut palms

Pollachi (near Coimbatore) is very popular for coconuts and also called as coconut country, contributes two third of totally productivity in Tamil Nadu. I have been to Pollachi more than couple of times, while on my ways to Valparai and Topslip; I come across number of coconut groves or road traveled amid them.

Low lying tender coconut
The trees stands tall all make wonderful sight across the region but during my drive to Topslip, we were surprise to see short coconut palms with bunch of coconuts hanging very close to ground at the village called Sethumadai. The coconut grove was neatly fenced in thorn wires and stone poles painted in white. But actually the fence doesn’t fascinate me then, like the short coconut palms.

I simply love to see swaying coconut palms while traveling by road ! And stop by the road side for a refreshing drink of coconut water !

I also noticed many short coconut trees in my country with lots of coconut fruits hanging. I thought it was easier for planters to pluck them instead of sending the monkeys up to work.

They look like trees that need to grow. It would be easier to pick them. We had coconut pie last night for supper.

the fence is really pretty and so are those trees. I can see why you are intrigued by them Jeevan.

The best thing I love in south is this abundance of palm trees and one coconut tree in almost every compound.

Maybe they can dig the earth and plant these trees along the fence, so that even the fruits of normal trees can be reached by hands! Good to see short coconut trees and so much green leaves :)

Pollachi has some old and famous temples I have heard. I once halted there to have lunch, that's all. I have to make special plans to visit this place.

Hi Jeevan,
Coimbatore - such a lovely city.
I didn't know about the Coconut production in Pollachi. That's great!

Nice fact about Tamil Nadu.
