Description

YOU ARE BUYING ONE(1) Coconut “seed”

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 with all natural soils and fertilizers.

Germination instructions will be included with your order.

The germination process will take several months.

The coconut that you receive will not have sprouted yet.  If you want a head start with a sprouted coconut or one that is several feet tall see our other listings.
