I'm pretty sure real coconuts are seriously tropical. Like die at 40 degrees. I do see germinated ones in produce markets here (Houston) sometimes, but don't think they would survive long enough to produce anything. I
That being said, if you do have success please keep us informed. It would be cool to have productive coconut palms!

Must be kidding. Wouldn't make it in that zone.

Pbala - there is a farmer's market on the North side of Houston. Canino produce (I think). It's at 2520 Airline dr. I have seen sprouted coconuts there. I don't know how often you could find them. They have a bunch of vendors and sell whatever is in season. There are 2 good yerbarias close as well. D
