Default Re: Coconuts and cold tolerance

I am currently growing Jubaea Chilensis so I know what you mean by slow germination. Coconuts in my opinion are fast growers, at least for palms. Depending on variety, they can fruit in 3-7 years.

I agree with you I think this forum is about pushing the limit. That is why I posted it here I thought I could find more people on here that are willing to scoff at the naysayers. I think with some searching and persistance we could grow coconuts in higher latitudes of FLorida and southern California. I may just may have to build a greenhouse, or move as I am in northern California. A warm area but still to cold.

Let us as a group try what others say no too. Use different varieties and see how they do. After all isn't that how so many of us are growing bananas?
