Of the palms the cocoanut is by far the most important.
Of fruit trees, besides the cocoanut, there may be mentioned the many varieties of the bread-fruit, of bananas and plantains, of sugar-cane and of lemon; the wi (Spondias dulcis), the kavika (Eugenia malaccensis), the ivi or Tahitian chestnut (Inocarpus edulis), the pine-apple and others introduced in modern times.
The islands are generally low, and covered with forest, in which the cocoanut palm is conspicuous.
The chief exports are cocoanut products, for the preparation of which there are factories, and tea; and the chief import is rice.
