Which tissue makes up the husk of coconut?

Answer:

Sclerenchyma tissue makes up the husk of the coconut.

Explanation

Sclerenchymatous tissue makes up the husks of coconuts. Nuts and fruits are protected from the elements by thick-walled, usually lignified cells. It is also known as the plant’s supporting tissues since it provides mechanical strength and stiffness to the plant.
  • It is a dead, simple-permanent ground tissue.
  • During the plant’s initial growth cycle, the sclerenchyma cells persist as the living cells and resemble spiral or ring patterns.
  • Sclerenchyma refers to a dead tissue because of its dead, degenerated or functionless inner protoplast.
  • The cell-wall type, rigidity, shape, size etc., of sclerenchyma will vary according to different plant types.
  • Mechanical and conductive sclerenchymatous tissues are two common types based on function.
