Palm Trees

Looking for that tropical touch? Here you can find our guide on how to get and grow Palm Trees on your Island in Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH). You can also see what Palm Trees and Coconuts are used for, so check out our advice below.

How to Plant Palm Trees

How to Grow Palm Trees

Plant and Grow on Sandy Beaches

A Palm Tree will grow if you dig a hole on the beach with your shovel and plant a Coconut. Four days after planting, the Palm Tree will be fully mature and bear new Coconuts. It won't grow if you plant it anywhere other than the beach, so be careful!

Coconuts can be harvested again three days after harvesting.

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

Palm Trees on Mystery Islands

Find Coconuts on Mystery Tour 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?

Sell Coconuts for Bells / Money

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.

Complete List of Bugs

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

Like all the other Fruits, Coconuts can be eaten to get Stamina, so eating Coconuts is another good way of getting Stamina for your Island remodelling!

With Stamina, you can break rocks and dig up entire trees.

Get All 3 Types of Wood

Palm Tree Wood
Like all the other trees in the game, Palm trees also drop all types of Wood when chopped with an axe. Combine it with Coconut gathering for some effecient material collecting!
