I need to Correct my above statement. Coconut trees will grow in Sarasota County but won't produce Coconuts. Sarasota is in CENTRAL Fla. The South Sarasota County Line is the Demarcation point between S W and Central Fla. As you drive South on Hwy 41 from Tampa, First you leave that micro Climate. But as you drive the Landscape becomes more and more Tropical. East Coast of Fla has a huge Micro Climate because of the Gulf Stream. .
