The macapuno is a mutant of the coconut. Until I had to write

this piece, I thought that the macapuno fruit is just an abnormal

outgrowth of the regular coconut tree as I had learned as a child.

Not anymore, the Philippine Coconut Authority corrected me. The

Authority has developed macapuno trees that yield 80 per cent

macapuno fruits. The trees grow in abundance in Albay where the

Authority's research center is.
