What is the Genjeh Entok Type Of Coconut Tree?
The wild elephant type coconut tree is the best type of coconut tree that is suitable as the best sap producer. The uniqueness of this type of coconut fruit plant is that it has a mini and short stature. The height of the wild goose coconut trunk is only about 3-4 meters. The shape of the stem from the base to the tip of the stem is the same size. Stem height at the end of its productive age is not more than 10 meters
With the selection of superior seeds, optimal cultivation, and a combination of good planting and care, the early maturing coconut can produce 140 eggs per tree in one year when it reaches maturity. The advantage lies in the relatively fast fruiting age, which is 3 years after planting, the slow increase in plant height, which is between 40-50 cm per year.
The next advantage of the early maturing coconut fruit plant is that it has a fairly high adaptation level. Dwarf coconut fruit plants can grow well in any form of soil, as long as it has healthy drainage and aeration, and gets enough sunlight.
