Coconut, ye zi

Coconut

Cocos nucifera, YE ZI

 

The coconut, ye zi, is also called ye li (coconut chestnut) and ye yi. It is a tropical tree that can attain a height of 30 meters. The trunk is straight and vertical with no branches and marked with bands that resemble joints (though they are in fact marks where leaves have fallen off). The leaves and fruit are all at the top of the tree.

The fruit is roughly egg shaped, with a slight indication of 3 ridges and is 250-350 mm long and 200-250 mm in diameter. The outer surface is bare and somewhat smooth and a dusty yellow color. Inside this is a dry layer of loose thick fiber which protects the shell of the nut in the centre. When this hard shell is broken open it reveals the white flesh (and also endosterm, which can be eaten if desired).

The flesh is slightly sweet and fragrant. Inside is a cavity which contains a large quantity of coconut water, the flavor of which is also slightly sweet and fragrant. It can be drunk. The fruit ripens in the summer. The nature of the flesh and the water is neither warm nor cold, and contains no poison.


Its virtue is that it can enliven the saliva, benefit urine and repel insects.

The flavor of the shell is bitter, astringent and of a warm nature. It can kill insects and relieve itching.

Coconut water contains glucose, sucrose, fructose, etc. The flesh contains glucose, sucrose, stachyose, protein, fat, coconut oil, vitamins, etc. The shell contains xylon, etc.
