Malayan Gold Dwarf Coconut is a short palm tree up to 45 feet in height, but usually much less.

       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.


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

          The Malayan Gold 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.

Malayan Gold Semi-Dwarf Coconut

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.

     Malayan Gold 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, Malayan Gold 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.

Combined Discounts Won Auctions

     For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% 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 item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied selection. 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 gets 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 me to clean and prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It takes my wife and I, a day 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.
