This is a monospecific genus, and as such there is no value in having it be a separate article. This content should go back into coco de mer (actually coco-de-mer, since that is the more common name in authoritative refs). Stan 00:19, 8 Nov 2003 (UTC)
breaks if it hits the ground?
I once saw a documentary about a giant nut or seed, that requires a thick bed of leaves covering the ground, or else it will crack open when it lands, and rot before germinating (or something similar). I also remember it being mentioned that it was the largest nut in the world, or one of the largest. Does anyone know if this is that species? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:47, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
The section headed "Fruit" states:
However, it is now known that the viable nut is too dense to float, and only rotted out nuts can be found on the sea surface.
whereas that headed "History and mythology" appears to contradict this, thus:
Surely with genetic testing it should be possible to determine whether the plant is male or female, right? The claim that it cannot is unreferenced, and the closest following reference appears to be a broken link. Hypershock (talk) 07:47, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
