Israel is top of the tree

First Prev 1 2 3 4 Next Last

Coconut palms along Ferry Reach in St George's provided a bonanza for 65-year-old Sir Israel, who had no problem shinning up to collect their fruit.

Bermuda lies at the northern edge of the range for the trees, which are not endemic here and grow slowly in our climate.

The trees are prized as wind barriers and grown for ornamental purposes, as well as for their coconuts. Zak and Ziva Suluki enjoyed the fruits of his labour.
