Rangiroa Red Dwarf Coconut
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
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

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
Hardiness: USDA Zone 10b: to 1.7 °C (35 °F)
USDA Zone 11: above 4.5 °C (40 °F)

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
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
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.

NOT eligible for any discount.

COMBINED SHIPPING POLICY
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is not included in this offer.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ON LIVE PLANTS on a case by case basis.
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.

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).

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..
