In Oman, three different strains of variety King Coconut, with oval, pointed and elongated (bottle shape) fruits were found. These palms were identified as typical King Coconut, a semi tall coconut variety from Sri Lanka. Some of the coconut palms in Oman are looking like King Coconut but with a more pronounced dwarf habit. They could be the Pemba Red Dwarf from Tanzania. In the past many Omani lived in Zanzibar and they could have brought this dwarf a long time ago.
