Grow Your Own Delicious Coconuts At Home

The Coconut Palm is one of the most popular palm tree varieties in the world because it makes large, savory coconuts. Plus, they will grow outdoors as well as inside in a container, making it possible to grow your own coconuts even if you live up North.

By placing your Coconut Palm in a container you can place it outside on warm sunny days, and bring it indoors during the colder months and before you know it you will have tons of large coconuts with soft, creamy flesh and rich coconut milk. 

Coconuts are a super fruit. Their water contains more electrolytes than any other liquid and their flesh contains high amounts of iron, potassium, zinc, antioxidants protein and more to keep the body healthy and energized.

By growing your own coconuts at home you’ll save time and money by not having to go the store for expensive fruit, as well as a healthy snack that’s delicious when eaten raw or added to your favorite recipes.

Coconut Palms arrive growing out of a coconut that sits in the top of their container for a unique tropical look before growing into a mature palm with beautiful ringed grey bark and a large crown filled with fronds that are covered with bright green leaflets.

They can be used in a variety of ways, because when kept in a container they grow about 3 to 4 feet tall and will fit perfect inside your home, on your porch or patio. When planted outdoors in zones 9 through 11 they can grow up 50 feet tall to shine out in the neighborhood, transforming your landscape into a tropical paradise.

Your friends and neighbors will love watching your entertaining Coconut Palm because it’s always doing something all year. It has creamy yellow blooms and produces new green coconuts that ripen to a shade of brown when they’re ready to be harvested. 

Coconut Palms are tough, low maintenance trees that have a high heat and drought tolerance and wind resistance. They will also grow indoors without making a fuss in low light conditions. All you have to do is plant your tree and enjoy your fresh coconuts.

Nice healthy specimen
I had a coconut palm that I grew from a small plant found in South Florida. It grew quite large in a patio pot, but eventually died. So I was really happy to see this coconut palm offered. It now has a prime spot on our "tropical island" a.k.a. back porch!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Coconut Palm

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Coconut Palm.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Coconut Palm gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Coconut Palm again after the transplant is complete.

I have been wanted to build a (log pole) patio in my back yard, and I also had been purchased a lot of different kind of tropical fruit trees on line. And it's time for me to add these 2 coconut palm trees to bring out the paradise look. Hopefully I can retire here in California, and I don't have to buy land in Hawaii to live my retiring dream.

How do you plant coconut palm in a pot. Do you leave the coconut shell above the ground?
Beamer on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: What I have found is that you need to use a pot larger than what you might think is sufficient. The roots will grow quickly. I planted mine with about 1/4 of the seed exposed. Use good soil in a pot that drains well. If the seed stays too wet, it will rot. I hope that this helps.
If your coconout grows a baby, can you safely remove it and pot it separately?
Kathy L.
Kathy L on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, be sure to soak the coconut in water for 2-3 days before planting.

Does this need another to pollinate?
Kevin K on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The flowers of the coconut palm are polygamomonoecious, with both male and female flowers in the same inflorescence.

Flowering occurs continuously, with female flowers producing seeds.

Coconut palms are believed to be largely cross-pollinated, although some dwarf varieties are self-pollinating.

Coconut flowers are huge in numbers but female flowers are very Small in numbers.

They are always at the base and only from them the coconut fruits develop.These flowers are easy to identify because of their large size and spherical shape. Got it from yahoo awnsers
Eugene Oregon will this grow ok outside in soil??? Not in a pot...
Laurie Oregon on Jun 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It grows ok in a pot. Have mine for a yr now and looks healthy. I am concern that it will out grow the pot. I planned to put it in a. Offer put in the next few weeks. However, in terms of fruiting - I don't see it producing. I believe a coconut palm needs to be mature and big enough to bear fruit. Folks say that it would bear but I struggle to see how that will be a reality. In the meantime, I am enjoying the lush green branches.

Do you have to plant 2 or more to get it to bear fruit?
Becky on May 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You only need one. Just remember coconut palms are very cold sensitive. If you live in an area that gets cold, your coconut plant will need to come inside for the winter. Make sure you have supplemental light and keep it away from drafts. In the summer, grow it outdoors and make sure you place it in a very sunny and warm spot.
How old are the 5 - 6 foot coconut trees?
TMangum on Sep 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sometimes it's hard to tell the age of a 5-6 foot coconut tree. Climate, soil, sun exposure all play a factor.
I have 2 coconut trees that are reaching close to 5' tall, and they are under two years old. I hope this helps.
