India is the third-largest coconut producer globally and has increased its share in global coconut production as well. India has a coastline of more than 7,500 kilometers which accounts for more than 90% of the coconuts produced in coastal areas in India as their sandy, or loamy soil is ideal for coconut production. Ideally, they are planted in June and July, and the process of fruit set starts three years after the plantation. In the past decade, coconut production in India has increased by 34.71%, from 10.84 million tonnes in 2010 to 14.82 million tonnes in 2019, and share in global production increased from 18.15% to 23.51%.
