This article is about the player-grown plant that yields coconuts. For the plant that yields palm leaves, see leafy palm tree.

A palm tree (also known as a coconut tree) must be grown with the Farming skill. Level 68 farmers may plant a palm tree seed in a plant pot that has been filled with dirt from any empty gardening patch; a gardening trowel is needed to plant the seed. It must then be watered. This action is all performed in the inventory.

The planted seed will become a palm sapling in less than five minutes and can then be transferred to a fruit tree patch. Compost or super compost may be added prior to planting, and once planted (using a spade). The nearby farmer could be paid 15 papaya fruits to watch over your tree.

An amulet of nature may be bound to the patch to provide progress on its growth. Once mature, the tree produces up to six coconuts at a time.

A palm tree sapling will take 16 hours to fully grow.

Planting the palm sapling gives 110.5 Farming experience. A healthy palm tree, when checked, provides 10,150 Farming experience.

Each coconut, when picked, gives 41.5 Farming experience. Once all 6 coconuts have been picked, this gives a total of 10,509.6 experience per seed. The tree will produce more coconuts until all 6 are available again. However, the coconuts may be picked any time they show on the tree. It takes approximately 30 minutes for each fruit to respawn.

The coconuts are used in the Herblore skill to make antipoison+weapon poison(+), antidote++weapon poison(++) and as payment of 25 to gardeners for looking after magic trees.
