These shapely nuts were often collected and brought back by merchant 
seamen and have always been highly prizes as curiosities. 
They come from a tall palm tree native to the Seychelles and are the 
largest known seed in the world. As the first nuts were found floating 
in the sea they are known as 'Coco De Mer'.
