I just photo the coconut in our backyard this morning. The coconut is dwarf but got already fruits. It's a kind of hybrid that it will take only three years to grow and will bear fruits. But comparing to other dwarf coconut which have lots of fruits, mine got a single fruit only. It just starting to have fruits. Someday it will grow more. You don't need to climb the tree because even kids will have no problem getting one.

I remember the frustration of my grandpa when he planted coconut trees on his backyard and the tree ended up being very tall. Is this a special cultivar or is there a way to make coconut trees short?

its a variety of coconut, no special cultivation, you plant it and wait for three years and the fruit will appear

That would be so nice to have in the garden . Should you want a young coconut , just go to the garden and pick one .

We have two of those. In the first few years it was ok to pluck them but now we need a climber to do that.

I wanted to plant more of these so I let that fruit to get ripe hard and plant it when the leaves come out.

@ilocosboy What leaves are you talking about? If you want to produce a plant from that coconut then you should let it dry on the tree and let it fall. Then soak it in water when you will see a shoot coming out. You can then make a hole 3x3 and plant it.

I look at this and all I see is a pokemon haha is there a reason why these trees grow short? Is it because of climate or perhaps lack of sun?
