Coconuts are known for their great versatility, as evidenced by many traditional uses, ranging from food to cosmetics. They form a regular part of the diets of many people in the tropics and subtropics. Coconuts are distinct from other fruits for their large quantity of water (also called "juice") and when immature, they are known as tender-nuts or jelly-nuts and may be harvested for their potable coconut water

International Direct Dialing
INTERNATIONAL DIRECT DIALING (IDD) or INTERNATIONAL SUBSCRIBER DIALLING (ISD) is placing an international telephone call that is dialed directly by a telephone subscriber, rather than by an telephone operator . The term international subscriber dialling was used in the United Kingdom and Australia until the terminology was changed to international direct dialling. Since the late 20th century, most international calls are dialed directly. Calls are initiated by dialing the international call prefix for the originating country, followed by the country calling code for the destination country, and finally the national telephone number of the destination. When phone numbers are published for international use, the international call prefix is omitted, and the number should start with a plus sign (+) followed by the country calling code. The plus sign indicates that the country code follows and that an access code may have to be dialed in the originating country
