Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut

    Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut Palm Seedling


        This beautiful palm embodies the romance of the tropics and is also of great  economic value. There are many varieties, from dwarfs to the familiar tall  growing types that reach 50-80 ft. All have graceful gray trunks topped by a  crown of pinnately compound     yellow-green leaves. Each leaf is 12-15 ft  long with many leaflets. Malayan     Gold  Dwarf Coconut is a short palm tree up to 45 feet in height, but usually much     less.

      Most     of us in the U.S. are familiar with the coconut palm from resorts in Hawaii, Florida and     the Caribbean. Since falling coconuts can pose a serious (sometimes fatal!) health hazard     to guests, they are often removed by resort managers hoping to avoid injuries and     lawsuits. Honolulu regularly has tall coconut trees trimmed due to a lawsuit. This is a     solution to this problem. Malayan Gold Coconut Trees stay short and thin. It bears     coconuts are able to be picked with a short ladder.

      The large spirally     arranged leaves are up to 12 feet or more in length, and are pinnately divided into     numerous strap shaped segments. The separate male and female flowers are in axillary     panicles. The male flowers have 3 yellow petals and 2 stamens. The ovoid coconut is up to     a foot long, and is composed of a thick fibrous husk, a hard shell, and a single seed with     the copra lining the interior, and water (coconut milk) filling the cavity when it is     young.

Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut makes a beautiful accent on the lawn and provides nice filtered shade for     the patio.

Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut is very salt tolerant and is at its most sensational when     planted beachside where the sea breeze can rustle its huge feather leaves.

    Coconut palms have two natural subgroups simply referred to as     "Tall" and "Dwarf". Most commercial plantings use high yielding,     longer lived Tall cultivars, and each region has its own selections, e.g., ‘Ceylon     Tall', Indian Tall', ‘Jamaica Tall' (syn. ‘Atlantic Tall'), ‘Panama Tall'     (syn. ‘Pacific Tall'). The Tall cultivar group is sometimes given the name Cocos nucifera var.     typica, and the dwarf cultivar group C. nucifera     var. nana. Malayan Gold Coconut Trees are in this     dwarf group. Dwarf cultivars, particularly the popular ornamentals, are largely     self-pollinating as opposed to the Tall cultivars of commerce which rarely pollinate     themselves.

The coconut palm starts fruiting 6 to 10 years after the seed germinates and reaches full production at 15 to 20     years of age. It continues to fruit until it is about 80 years old with an annual production of 50 to 200 fruits per tree, depending on cultivar and climate. The fruits     require about a year to develop and are generally produced regularly throughout the year.

     Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconuts are small drupes, ovoid in shape, up     to 12" long and 10" wide. The exocarp or skin is yellow to gold, turning to brown with age. The mesocarp is fibrous and dry at maturity.

During the last two     decades, coconut palms in south Florida have been attacked by a microorganism that causes     a fatal disease called lethal yellowing. Fortunately, Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut is lethal     yellowing resistant.

            The Malayan Dwarf Coconuts and Samoan Dwarf Coconut in Hawai‘i, and many other palm     species are resistant to lethal yellows. The 'Malayan Dwarf' cultivar and the hybrid     'Maypan' have been widely planted in Florida because of their reported resistance to     lethal yellowing (LY), a fatal disease of coconut palms in Florida and parts of the     Caribbean region.

Although     these varieties were originally believed to be highly resistant to this disease, long-term     trials in Florida have revealed that they are only slightly less susceptible than the     'Jamaican Tall' they were intended to replace. The only cultivar in the United States     that has been demonstrated in long-term studies to be resistant to LY is the 'Samoan     Dwarf' (Niu Leka), a slow-growing variety with very broad leaves and leaflets.

Nothing will set a tropical tone like this

There is a packing and custom boxing fee.

Last and usually least is USPS postage (shipping)


We can ship certified live plants to the US only. Only Domestic Shipping and Handling includes  USDA Certification.

International Buyers
– Please Note:
The additional charge ($100US) for any
Phytosanitary Certificate  is not included in this offer.
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.

We do ship Seeds Internationally worldwide.

Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.

Proper Permits and Documents are the Buyer's responsibility.

Please request any documents prior to shipping.

For foreign customers, please check your laws concerning permitting and customs,  additional shipping and handling costs may apply.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ON LIVE PLANTS is available only under these conditions!

All international orders are shipped at the  BUYER'S RISK

 (shipped with or without documents) and no refunds or replacements are offered for Dead On Arrival, loss,  confiscation, Customs Seizure, unanticipated charges, etc.

All International shipments are at Buyer's Risk. Please spend no more more than you can lose!



We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person pick-ups and cash-on-delivery  (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail. Message me if you want to send cash.


Please only one Paypal payment. SO THE COMBINED SHIPPING RULE WILL CAN BE USED. Late or Multiple PayPal payments are  NOT eligible for any discount.

We will ship once a week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings  to you. This can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture. If payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be shipped the following week and  NOT eligible for any combined discount. Non-paying bidders will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is not included in this offer.



We will combine shipping for auctions won on the same week paid with same PayPal payment.

This policy is good for auction items bought and paid for in the week ending MONDAY.

We ship on Tuesdays.

Payment must be received within 4 days of the auction ending.

Combined Discounts Won Auctions

For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

For 4-7 winning auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

For 8+ winning auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges  individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the discount (i.e.: additional items)

My stores' combined shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied selection. Domestic S/H includes  postage, USDA certification and inspection, proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery.

I can't really change any of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it is hard to discount much as each  different species requires it's own prep, packing, then at USDA each has to be unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires us to clean and  prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island.

This requirement takes my wife and I, 2-3 days to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we drive  around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if  you can understand.

Before you purchase After you Receive your Items.

There is the risk when you grow plants  that they may die. LIVE PLANTS are PERISHABLE, guaranteed not to live forever.

US orders ONLY are GUARANTEED LIVE  ARRIVAL. All International orders are shipped at the BUYER's RISK!

When you order a plant we assume you are  prepared to care for it. It is your responsibility to know how to care for the  plant. Do some research before they arrive or seek experienced help.

 Small plants need protection from many  things, wind, sun, dry-out. They do well just in the garage or living room. They  need good light but not sunlight (full sun will burn small plants). Small pots dry-out easily. Just sitting in a  shallow tray of water works well. The idea is to keep the plants from  dehydrating.

Be careful if you decide to re-pot.  Re-potting voids any warranty. Plants are easily damaged with new/different mix.  Use NO fertilizers (this may kill your plants). Proper care is critical upon  arrival. Live Plants are NOT GUARANTEED  to survive under your care. DO NOT expect any live plant to be GUARANTEED to  remain alive. Plants are NOT GUARANTEED TO SURVIVE after you begin Care! Live  arrival is guaranteed, eternal survival is up to you.


 IF YOU are NOT able to provide PROPER  CARE, PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT plant to be GUARANTEED after it perishes.


Please Do NOT email me after a week  after receiving and repotting your plant, and make a claim it arrived damaged.  All photo support  must be as arrived in original condition when received (in the box and packed as  delivered).

If you repot your plant after delivery,  all warranties are voided and no replacement is offered. You should use good  gardening skills and repot if desired but at buyer's risk and expense.

If repotted, you are responsible for the  condition of the plant. NO REPLACEMENT or REFUND WILL BE CONSIDERED  IF YOU HAVE REPOTTED THE PLANT.

Not every plant that I grow survives, and  I am aware of that and accept the risk when I order. This is the risk that you  as the buyer accept, because there is no way to know what  kind of conditions it will endure in the trip to your door. My responsibility  ends when a live plant is delivered to your door.

You are agreeing to these terms  when you make this purchase from this listing.

Rare Seeds

Fresh Highest  Quality

When you receive your seeds, you have only 7 days to make any claim. Once planted, seeds can NOT be returned and no refund is offered. All seed sales are final. There are no germination guarantees.

Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised. Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements, refunds, returns and exchanges will be  made at the sole discretion of the seller.

  Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and  reasonable weather conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and risk. Consequentially,  the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes..
