According to the BJP in Goa coconut plant is not a tree but just grass. Is it the same in other states?

The coconut palm root system[15] consists of an abundance of thin roots that grow outward from the plant near the surface. Only a few of the roots penetrate deep into the soil for stability. This type of root system is known as fibrous or adventitious, and is a characteristic of grass species

According to the Vatican, coconut is a Hindu plant, and hence, is taboo for its followers.

Kerala may have a lot of coconuts but few people who can climb trees and pluck them( I read articles dealing with this problem). May be, soon the people of Kerala may buy coconuts grown in Gujarat

Good to compete

Good that Gujarat wants to compete with southern states in Coconut. It's most welcome. Gujarat peoples' health with improve with coconut consumption too.

Gujarat does not have competition for diamonds. Competition from southern states ( Eg Telenghana .. as Hyderabad has the potential ) will help the industry and economy.

More than 30% of India’s coconut exports come from the state of Tamil Nadu. Its fertile soil harvests around 14,000 coconuts per hectare. The district of Krishnagiri sits atop all districts in India as the largest producer of coconut in the entire South Asia.(source)
