How to Plant Palm Trees

Plant and Grow on Sandy Beaches

ACNH - A resident plants a coconut in the beach
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 plant coconut trees on sand paths

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. Simply go to the Airport with a Nook Miles Ticket to go on a Mystery Tour.

You can also eat fruits while on the Mystery Island to bring the fully-grown tree home with you instead.
