No that's just a myth monkeys do not like coconuts!!!
No. The correct title of the song is "I've Got A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts."
- The jury is out on whether the coconut is a fruit, nut or seed. A Botanist considers the coconut one-seeded drupe (aka: dry drupe.) A drupe is a fruit with a hard stony covering enclosing the seed (much like a peach or olive.) 'Drupa means 'overripe olive. The coconut and all drupes have three layers: exocarp (outer layer); the mesocarp (fleshy middle layer) and the endocarp (hard, woody layer that surrounds the seed.) The definition given as coconut can be all three: a fruit, a nut or a seed. Until proven otherwise the coconut comes under: fruit; nut and seed.
