The Coconut and Colombia

The coconut is a major component of Colombian agriculture and economy. Up until the mid-1850's, the primary agrarian focus was cotton. When it was discovered that coconuts would provide a better yield and price, many trees were planted, and a new industry was born. Coconuts are important to the country's cuisine, especially in main dishes, and also as an export. Coconut oil is used to fry foods in throughout the world and as a beauty product for dry skin. Fibers from the coconut tree branches are woven to create ropes, hats, rugs, baskets and decorative objects. As you tour Colombia, you will find many unique uses for coconuts. The dried shells are turned in to bowls, cups, dishes and spoons for the kitchen. In the living room, you can turn on a coconut lamp or place your change into a coconut ashtray. For personal decoration, slices of shell are turned in to earrings, pendants and belts, giving every outfit a tropical flair.
