Coconuts

Biotech Plantations currently own a 1,000 acres coconut plantation in Rompin in the state of Pahang, Malaysia. The plantation is in the early stages of coconut production, with 55,000 palms currently planted and a further 18,000 palms to be planted.

Biotech Plantations has expansion plans for a further 3,000 acres in Malaysia to make Biotech Plantations one of the largest coconut producers in Malaysia in the coming years. The plantations also allow for intercropping with selected tropical fruit crops, such as pineapple, banana, and papaya.

PINEAPPLES

The pineapple (Ananas Comosus) is a tropical plant with an edible fruit and part of the Bromeliaceae family. The pineapple is indigenous to South America, where it has been cultivated for many centuries. The pineapple was introduced to Malaya in the late part of the 19th century by Europeans initially in Singapore. The industry grew rapidly in Johor in conjunction with the rubber industry as pineapples were intercropped in the rubber plantations.

The pineapple plant is a herbaceous perennial and produces up to 200 flowers. The individual fruits of the flowers then join together to create a multiple fruit typically 15 to 20 months after planting. Pineapples, when fully ripe, can range in weight from 1 to 2 kg. On a commercial plantation, one can plant 15,000 to 20,000 plants per acre.

Pineapple has become a main ingredient in meat, vegetable, fish, and rice dishes. Pineapple is mainly eaten fresh when available, or in canned form, and pineapple juice is a common healthy beverage.

PAPAYA

The papaya (Carica Papaya L.) is a tropical fruit plant originally from Southern Mexico, Central America, and Northern South America and is now grown in most tropical countries.

Papaya plants grow in three sexes: male, female, and hermaphrodite. The male produces only pollen, never fruit. The female produces small, inedible fruits unless pollinated. The hermaphrodite can self-pollinate since its flowers contain both male stamens and female ovaries. Almost all commercial papaya orchards contain only hermaphrodites.

Papaya is grown for its melon-like fruit and is a herbaceous short-lived perennial. Papaya trees can typically live for 5-10 years, but in commercial plantings, they are replanted every 2-3 years as the trees become too tall for harvesting.

BANANAS

The banana is a fruit of the genus Musa and a member of the Musaceae family. It is one of the most important fruit crops globally and widely grown throughout the tropics and consumed worldwide.

The banana plant is a gigantic herb that springs from an underground stem and reaches a height of 3 to 6 metres. A large flower spike with yellowish flowers emerges at the top of the trunk and bends downward to become bunches of 50 to 150 individual fruits or fingers. The individual fruits, or bananas, are grouped in clusters of 10 to 20. After a plant has fruited, it is cut down as each trunk produces only one fruit bunch.
