COCO DE MER
I read in a 111-year old newspaper (NY Herald, March 11, 1906) that a Coco de Mer from the Seychelles was now "a fine specimen with leaves about 5 feet in length". I wondered if it is still in the NYBG, or died off many years ago. I have attached a small part of the article, which refers to the palm. I grew up in Seychelles, hence my interest.
