Samoan dwarf coconut palm?

Anyone have one? Also, do you know where I can buy one? There is someone on ebay selling them but those are expensive.

I dont think its worth growing the dwarf ones in pots because any coconut is going to act like a dwarf when potted. I was thnking about the same coconut a few years back, but it wasnt worth the price on ebay. I think the dwarfs are only worth growing in the tropics since its resistant to lethal yellowing and the fruit is much easier to pick on the dwarfs than the talls.

There are two but it now listings and one auction. The auction has a startind bid of 24.99 with 19.61 shipping. That is just the coconut not a sprout. One but it now is for the coconut and is 29.99 plus 19.61 shipping. The other buy it now is 60.00 with free shipping.

Im not sure what kind of coconut I have, but I dont think its a tall (Might be a Malayan Dwarf Coconut which is kind of a medium sized coconut). It grows differently than my tall that I got from Hawaii (more compact).
