Where can I get a Coconut?

Niles, MI(Zone 5a)

i want to try my hand at growing my own coconut palm. Where can I get a coconut in the husk??????

Hi Annabelle,

They grow wild here in sandy soil.
But if you ever wanted to grow one you are better off buying shot seed or one in a pot.
In the husk they can be up to 12 months old rendering them dead.

We can buy them at our Supermarkets.

You will have to grow one indoors in your climate.. .they are very tropical palms... and large... you may have to get a pretty tall greenhouse.

Annabelle, coconuts turn up on Ebay here from time to time, so probably the same in the US. Another way is to take a holiday in southern Florida and go back with a suitcase full. As mentioned by Geoff your climate is against you but check out this discussion for ideas on keeping them small.

the room for the plant is no problem, I have a sumporch with 12 foot celings. I'll check E-bay, thanks
