– A pair of coconuts weighing nearly nine kilo each is on display at an
exhibition in the southern province
of Soc Trang.

The giant coconuts are products 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 the 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

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.
