Postage Free Fruit Trees


Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera

Moderate sized fruit with large volume-to-husk ratio. Reputedly the sweetest fruits for drinking. These high yielding precocious hybrid selections will grow outside of the tropics, in a warm and sheltered position. Worth trying in coastal locations as far south as Coffs Harbour. They will require free draining soil and are best planted deep with a deep organic mulch surrounding them.

Question & Answer

Hi, I am from Gympie, do you think this coconut will grow here? From: WILSONS POCKET QLD

Gympie can get quiet cold in winter, so I wouldnt recommend it. Needs a coastal warm climate where the temperature dosnt drop below 10deg ideally. In saying that I know of a Coconut in Kyogle in frost free warm position that is 6yrs old.

I love coconuts- as a beautiful shaped palm and for the fruit. This one is still pretty tall for a dwarf, but I'm willing to give it a try. I am not sure if I have the right climate for it to fruit in Brisbane.
