Dwarf Coconut Trees

    6 responses

Bob N starts with ...
I live on the Gold Coast and really want to grow a couple of dwarf coconut trees. I would like to know how high these dwarf trees might grow and if they will grow here.
Cheers
Bob N

Hi Bob N, best way I know how to keep coconuts from growing tall, is dig a hole in the lawn and plants them.
Don't mulch or fertilize, allow the lawn to grow up to the trunk :-)

There are quite a few dwarves around, especially if you extend your search to the Torres Strait. Mua Island is supposed to have a super duper dwarf type. most regular dwarves still grow pretty tall in time, especially up north, just not into the enormous bean poles the talls grow into. Daley's advice is that they will grow down to Coffs along the coast. They can grow in Brisbane. I've seen dwarves and natives (long nuts) growing near town. Reportedly an obviously much more cold tolerant one growing in the western part of town toward Ipswich. Daley's sometimes stock them. Palms for Brisbane also gets them in in the warmer months.

jf I know of the malay red,green and yellow types which are thin with small crowns and the giant dwarf which has a normal sized crown.The malay yellow is sometimes called orange and is the most common.The coconuts are better quality than the big types and they are a little more tropical.

My three dwarf's got through last winter, very well, outside in bonzai bags. They put on a nice lot of growth during this last coolish summer. Here's hoping they all get through this winter too and I'm just an hour's drive north of Sydney.. I'm happy they're surviving, and looking very ornamental.

John Mc if you get 4 more you might have Snow White turn up on the doorstep and they'll never survive that.They still get tall given enough time but keep the thin trunk.I have seen them with coconuts at 1m above the ground.
