coconuts are actually fruits, not nuts. Of course, some people are allergic to coconuts but I think that is as far as the relationship goes.

There’s no connection with this. Yes it is a fruit and I guess you can’t get allergy on it.

There are some people with multiple allergies who are allergic to peanuts and coconuts, but that's just a coincidence as far as I'm aware. The thing to watch out for would be coconut oil made in a facility with peanut products also.

Coconut is a good fruit and it is good for the body however peanut if you are allergic to it you can get rashes. SO better know what you are allergic at.

My daughter is allergic to peanuts, coconuts, and all tree nuts. Yes coconuts are a fruit and peanuts are not actually a nut, they are a bean.
