About Solomon and Rennell Island Tall varieties
Thus, it is of crucial importance to retrieve information and map of the Yandina research centre, and to locate the plots where this improved Solomon Tall is still growing. This is the place from where seednuts should be sourced. The difference in production with ordinary Solomon Tall could be huge, probably about one ton of copra per hectare per year.
See the detailed descrition of the MAREN hybrid at the end of the publication devoted to "False and true ideas about coconut hybrids". Here under is a short funny video from Brazil showing coconut hybrids having the Rennell Island Tall (from Solomon Islands) as male parent.
