A Quality Plant delivered and installed two Pindo Palms yesterday. Both Pindo Palms received a specialty cut and had 4-5′ of trunk. The customer wanted the Pindo Palms for the fruit that they produce. The Pindo Palm is also called the Jelly Palm. The seeds can be eaten when ripe or used to make Jelly. Ripe seeds on the Pindo Palm are red/orange in color and about the size of a quarter. Pindo Palms are Cold Hardy Palms taking temperatures as low as 10 degrees with little or no damage. The Pindo Palm is slow growing, has feathery blueish green fronds that are recurvate.
We installed a Sylvester Palm / Phoenix sylvestris at the same location. The fruit of the Sylvester Palm can be eaten too. The fruit is not as large as that of the Phoenix dactylifera but can be tasty especially after a dry spring.
Another Palm that makes edible fruit is, of course, the Coconut Palm!
