palmsOrl Posted July 30, 2019 Report Share Posted July 30, 2019 I was telling another Palmtalk member how I really wanted to get my hands on a Mexican tall coconut palm, for the hardiness and appearance. He said to just look at the grocery store for de-husked coconuts labelled "Product of Mexico" and that these would all be from Mexican tall variety palms. I went to Publix today and they had coconuts and the label on the side of the bin said product of Mexico. But when I got home, I noticed one actually has a sticker on it that says "Product of Dominican Republic". So Either, they are all from the Dominican Republic or they are a mixed batch, some of which are from Mexico. I am inclined to believe the former. So, I will check out a couple local Mexican markets with higher hopes for finding coconuts truly from Mexico. As for these, I assume they are the Creole tall variety and I will be happy to have 1-2 in my collection. I have them soaking in water outside in the shade right now, where they will remain for a couple days, then I will do as Alex suggests and put each in a Ziploc bag with a bit of water, the bag then being placed in a bowl so the coconuts do not actually sit in the water. Then, I will wait... 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
