I recently harvested a compost pile, a pile of the leave it there and let it do its thing without interference variety. Essentially, we just put kitchen scraps mixed with some dry brown stuff on the top of the pile and let it do its thing for several years. So, to get to the point, when I harvested the pile recently, I discovered, in addition to a few plastic spoons (toddler additions most likely), most of a coconut shell at the bottom of the pile. So, my question is, just how long does it take a coconut shell to decompose?
