> Mr. Harris:
> Gregory Gilbert gave me your address and tolm me
> you might be able to help me with my dying coconut
> I am a native Honduran and live on a small farm
> near Puerto Cortes on the Atlantic coast. I have
> planted about a hundred coconut trees on out
> property but now that they are starting to bear
> fruit they are beginning to die. The bottom leaves
> turn brown and then the bloom, the tiny coconuts
> dry up. The last part of the cocout to turn brown
> are the main and center leaves. I know that what is
> called amarillamiento letal killed all our native
> coconuts along the coast, but I thought that these
> type of coconuts were the only ones affected. The
> ones I have planted are what we call "enanos" , coco
> tanque , and the ones that the rotary club started
> distributing. The small green, in different sizes,
> the yellow ones and the brownish ones are what we
> have. Also the coco tanque which holds almost a
> gallon of water inside. THese and the brownish ones
> are the ones starting to die. I know there is a
> beetle that also kills coconuts and I have seen some
> black with a long tiped
> nose, so I don't know what I should do. I just
> don't want to lose my trees after so much work.
> Is there anything you can help me with?
> I will appreciate it very much for any advise
> concerning this.
> Thank you very much.
