Wink Re: Coconuts and cold tolerance

I just bought a "GOLD MALAY DWARF COCONUT~ Cocos nucifera SEED." I will plant it in a pot first. After if it gets too big enough to bring inside my greenhouse, I guess I will do the test of planting it outside next to my salt water pool in zone 8 area- Dallas. My bananas are doing well. I have put some of the bananas that fruited late in a large container-growing well. And for my California Gold and Saba seems to be firm in ground outside. Of course I cover it with poly Tarp cover. Maybe next year, I will use the Christmas tree light to give it extra warmth.

Im also considering getting the Mini Coconut Palm and the Bolivian Coconut.
I only like investing on edible plant and trees.
I sure miss the feel of the tropical paradise..can't we bring some of those paradise here in Texas too?
This place did and it gets colder there; GREATER GOODNA NEWS Councillor Paul Tully - Division 2 City of Ipswich: What a lovely bunch of coconuts - in downtown Goodna!
