pindo palmButia Capitata
Known as the Pindo Palm, this single-trunked palm is easily recognized by its rounded canopy of blue-grey fronds and heavy trunk. The trunk is covered in old leaves, creating a very distinctive thick base for the graceful fronds. Large, showy clusters of orange-yellow edible fruits are produced and are often used to make jams or jellies. These palms are slow-growing and usually produce only one frond each year. It is best to purchase these palms at the size you would like it to be, as it takes 5-10 years for any growth to be noticeable. These cold-hardy palms can tolerate temperatures down to -10º C, with winter protection.
