ABSTRACT
Elaeis guineensis is a species of palm generally called African oil palm, and it can reach the height of 20 m or more at maturity. The oil palm is major importance in Africa as a multi-purpose tree where it supplies medicines, foods and many other products to the local population.

Elaeis guineensis coat colour varies from yellow to orange or nearly black. Varieties of oil
