How to Plant Palm Trees

Plant and Grow on Sandy Beaches

ACNH - How to Grow Palm Trees
Palm Trees grow in sandy areas like the beach. Use your shovel to dig a hole on the beach and plant a Coconut.

It takes four days for a Palm Tree to mature and bear new coconuts.

You can use the Island Designer app to make sandy paths, allowing you to plant Palm Trees in areas other than the beach.

How to Create Paths

When a Coconut is Planted, It Becomes a Nursery Coconut

Once you've planted a Coconut, it will become something called a Nursery Coconut, and digging it up again will not return the Coconut fruit.

Where to Get Coconuts

Find Coconuts on Mystery Tour Islands

ACNH - Palm Trees on Mystery Islands
Coconuts can be found on trees growing on the beaches of Mystery Tour islands.

From the Airport, choose I want to fly! and Use Nook Miles Ticket to go on a Mystery Tour. You'll need to have one in your inventory for the option to appear.

You can also eat fruits and bring the fully-grown tree home with you instead.

What are Palm Trees For?

Coconuts Can Be Sold for Bells

Coconuts sell for 250 Bells. That's 150 Bells more than the local fruit on your island, so it's a good way to make money.

You can also sell all other types of fruit than your original fruit for 500 Bells, so we recommend gathering them all and earn easy money from them.

In the guide below, you can see how to get them all and also find our Fruit trading board.

How to Get All Fruits

Catch Rare Bugs

There are some rare and valuable bugs that can only be found on Palm Trees. Among them are Horned Hercules and Horned Atlas, both of which can be sold for a lot of Bells, so make sure to grow some Palm Trees!

The Palm Tree exclusive bugs appear in July and August.

Use Coconuts for DIY

Some Items and Furniture require Coconuts to craft. If there's something you want to craft, you should save some of your Coconuts in your storage.

Can Be Eaten

Eating a coconut, like all the other fruits, lets you gain Stamina, allowing you to break rocks and dig up entire trees.

What Happens When You Eat Fruit?
