Odd fruits and vegetable in Vietnam

VietNamNet Bridge would like to introduce our readers to “special” fruits and vegetables harvested by Vietnamese farmers.

 1. 9kg coconut

 

The giant coconut is the product of Mr. Nguyen Van Trung, from Xom Choi hamlet in Ke An commune, Ke Sach district, Soc Trang province. 

 

The circumference of each coconut is around four spans. They have become an attraction at the exhibition. The coconuts are the largest that have been reported in the southwestern region so far.

 

Mr. Trung said that the giant coconuts belong to Bi species, with yellow cover. This species of coconut yields fruit of 3-4 times bigger than normal coconut species. Each coconut contains 2.5-3.5 liters of coconut milk. 

 

Trung has two coconut trees of this species, which are over 20 years old. They were planted by his father. Bi coconut species yield fruit all the year round, with 6-8 coconuts/bunch.
