The cocos or coconut tree grows in tropical regions which have both warm conditions and regular rainfall.

Egypt has the warmth, but rainfall is limited to one particular season of the year, which means that coconut palms do not grow there.

Other types of palm trees were native to ancient Egypt; there were the date palm, the dellach palm and the doum palm. The dellach is now extinct in Egypt; the doum was used mainly for its strong timber.
