If you want a Date Palm look but live in zones 7b – 10, then the Pindo Palm is the best choice for you. It has survived the occasional dip to 0*F across the upper South. The Pindo Palm offers long arching elegant leaves that are a lighter green with a silvery highlight on many specimens. It is considered relatively fast growing for a palm tree, and can produce delicious edible fruit after 7-10 years. Many folks use this fruit to make a sweet jelly, hence the name Jelly Palm.
The Pindo Palm could be considered medium to large in size due to its 2 foot plus trunk base and up to twenty foot wide leaf span. However, the Pindo Palm rarely achieves more than 30 feet in height. Again, the Pindo Palm is a great alternative for those of you living along the Atlantic Coast (Virginia – Arizona) and South.
Grows in zones: 8 - 10.
