Countries which Export Coconut to America

I believe you know that coconut grow well in tropical regions, hence, coconut producers come from hot temperature countries.

Coconuts with scientific name Cocos nucifera are easily to find in America groceries. Where do they come from?

Tropical countries known well for growing coconut trees are located in South East Asia, include:

- Thailand
- Malaysia
- Philippine
- and Indonesia.

Moreover, Brazil is the largest coconut producer from Latin America.

USA import US$ 34 million coconut per year. Most coconuts in the USA are coming from Latin America.

The countries or regions or territories which export coconuts to America:

- Cuba
- Latin America (central America countries)
- Pacific islands
- Puerto Rico

However, coconuts are growing in the USA too. Two states have coconut trees are:

- Hawaii
- and Florida.

Hence, it is not difficult to find coconut and some of its products in the USA, include in our state, Louisiana.

I saw the biggest retail in America, Walmart has sold coconuts for sometimes, but I always buy them in ethnic groceries such as Mexico and Asian shops.

Have your countries grown coconut trees?

  2. Colombia. donde vivo, es un país en su mayoría tropical. El coco, recuerdo desde niño, se daba silvestre. Y áun, por la costa norte, se observan sembradíos de coco, que en las playas de Cartagena, Santa Marta y San Andrés, en su cuenco se combina con una especie de aguardiente, que lo mixtura de manera agradable para las papilas. Un abrazo. Carlos

  9. No.
    Aquí en España no creo que se cultive en ningún sitio... quizás en las Islas Canarias pero no lo sé.
