‘Coco de Mer’ are the largest known seeds in the world and take 8 to 10 years to ripen on 100 year old tall palm trees that are unique and indigenous to only two of the 115 Seychelles Islands. Now protected, they were historically found by sailors floating mysteriously in the warm currents of the South Seas, hence their name ‘Coco de Mer’.
