A palm tree (also known as a coconut tree) is grown with the Farming skill. Level 68 farmers may grow a palm tree by plant a palm tree sapling in a fruit tree patch. The nearby farmer will watch over a growing palm tree in exchange for 15 papaya fruits. 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. The tree will produce six coconuts, which grant 41.5 Farming experience each when picked, for a total of 10,509.5 experience per seed from planting to harvest. After coconuts are picked, the tree will slowly produce more until all 6 are available again.
Coconuts are used in the Herblore skill to make coconut milk, which is required for antipoison+, weapon poison(+), antidote++, weapon poison(++). They are also used as payment for gardeners to look after dragonfruit trees (15 coconuts) and magic trees (25 coconuts).
Checking the health of a palm tree near Tree Gnome Village is a requirement for the hard Ardougne diary and in Lletya for the hard Western Provinces diary and in Brimhaven for the elite Karamja diary.
