Do coconuts grow in Florida? I had this question myself when I moved to Central Florida several years ago as I’m just nuts about coconuts. I looked around and saw plenty of palm trees but none seemed to be coconut palm trees.
The answer: Coconut palms generally do not grow in North and Central Florida, nor do plant and tree experts recommend growing them. Even though we don’t have too many cold days here, we get just enough that the coconut fruits would be severely effected.
Now, since South Florida is warmer and has nearly no cold days at all, coconut trees do grow in many areas, particularly in the Florida Keys area.
