The word "coconut" first appeared in the western world in the 15th century, when Portuguese explorers found this fruit prolifically growing on tropical islands throughout the Indian Ocean.  These explorers named it "coquo" (coco), meaning "small animal", because the eyes and mouth on the brown outer shell reminded them of the grinning face of a monkey! 

The coconut tree is a  member of the palm family, and the term "coconut" generally refers to the fruit it produces.  Known to be a "colonizer" by nature, the lightweight buoyancy of the coconut makes it capable of floating significant distances on the sea without losing its ability to germinate.  Coconut trees have been found growing near coastal waters all over the world. 

85% of the world's coconut production originates in the Philippines and Indonesia, while India and Sri Lanka provide the remaining 15%.  Once planted, a coconut tree can grow up to 100 feet tall, and yield thousands of coconuts and many thousands of liters of sap over its 70-100 year lifespan.
