Coconut Palm
Cocos Nucifera
One of the hardiest palms available and a true symbol of the tropics. Generally classified into two groups: ‘Talls’ & ‘Dwarfs’. We also grow a lot of hybrid ‘Maypan’ coconuts due to their disease resistance.

Under good growing conditions these palms can grow 2-3 feet per year reaching and overall height of 60-80ft for the tall varieties.This is some text inside of a div block.
