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


Coconut Palm Planting Diretions

The Coconut Palm tree is a producer of large, savory coconuts making it one of the more popular palms out there. This variety known as “Cocos nucifera Linn” performs best in USDA growing zones 4-8 on the patio (or potted) and 9-11 in the ground in full to partial sun. Coconut palms are slow growers, maturing to a height of 20-30 feet tall and 5-10 feet in width.If planning to keep the tree containerized, periodic re-potting will be necessary.

Planting Directions (in the ground): Keep the tree’s mature height in mind when you are scouting your planting site.

1) Dig your hole 2-3 times the width and slightly shallower than the root ball.
2) Loosen the soil, in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through.
3) Use your fingers to separate the roots of your Coconut palm and gently position 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.
4) Hold the tree straight as you begin to backfill the site, tamping down the soil as you go.
5) When finished, apply water to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.

Planting Directions (potted):
1) Choose a container that is 1-2 times larger than the pot that the plant initially arrived in.
2) Use a quality acidic potting medium such as a palm or citrus mix.
3) Partially fill the container part way, position the palm and fill the remainder leaving a slight space from the rim of the pot.
4) Choose a location on the patio, backyard, or front/side of the house providing it will receive full to partial sun.
5) Water until it begins to flow through the bottom drainage holes, keep the soil slightly moist but not saturated.
6) If bringing indoors during the winter, keep by a sunny window and water as needed. Avoid exposure to both drafts and heat from a window or vent.

Watering (in the ground): Palm trees are drought tolerant once established, but will require frequent watering as they establish. Allowing the soil to dry out will weaken the root system of the palm tree. Only allow the soil to dry 1-2 inches down before watering again. The frequency will depend on the climate and how much rain you receiving.

Watering (potted): Stick you finger into the potting soil down to a depth of 2 inches and feel around for any moisture. If the soil is drying out, go ahead and water until you see it escaping the drainage holes and then stop. If there is still moisture present, leave it be until it dries a bit more.

Pruning: Palms do not need much pruning except to remove damaged fronds. Be careful not to pull off any dead or damaged fronds as that can leave a wound behind. Always remove any damaged fronds by pruning them off with a sharp pair of sterilized pruners.

Mulch: To help enrich the soil and reduce growth competition from weeds, apply a heavy mulch around the trunk, using wood chips, cypress bark or lawn clippings. This will also help to reduce water consumption. Avoid letting the mulch touch the trunk as this can promote rot and/or fungus.

Fertilizing: Nutrients are vital for palm trees to thrive. The sandy, well draining soils they prefer have a tendency for nutrients to leach away quickly. You can apply palm fertilizers that contain specific nutrients best suited for palms. The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer such as an 8-8-8 formula for quicker growth in spring and summer. To avoid yellowing and maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt or a fertilizer that contains nutrients like manganese which will prevent the yellowing and shriveling of the fronds.

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?

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.

stonelor l on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you live within the recommended growing zones of 9-11 then you can plant them in the ground.
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.
