Coconut from South Florida for Display or Arts and Craft Projects

 

YOU ARE BUYING ONE(1) Coconut for Display or Arts and Craft Projects
The coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) is a member of the palm tree family (Arecaceae) and the only living species of the genus Cocos.[1] The term “coconut” (or the archaic “cocoanut”)[2] can refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which botanically is a drupe, not a nut. The term is derived from the 16th-century Portuguese and Spanish word coco meaning “head” or “skull” after the three indentations on the coconut shell that resemble facial features.[3] The coconuts are grown in South Florida without use of fertilizers or pesticides. The coconut has been off the tree for several weeks to a couple of months and will not germinate or be consumable. These are sold for Decoration, Display or Arts and Craft Projects ONLY! If you want a coconut to germinate or one that is already germinated or several feet tall see our other listings.
