Noteworthy Characteristics

The Pindo Palm, also known as the Jelly Palm, is a hardy, beautiful feather palm that has long arching leaves that curve towards the ground from atop a thick, stout trunk. The leaves are gray-green to blue-gray in color and can grow from 5 to 10 feet long. The palm produces yellow inflourescences that are followed by tasty orange fruit that is used for making jelly, hence the name.

Uses

If you garden in a cooler region where temperatures don't drop below 10 degrees F, and are looking to add a tropical feel to your landscape or outdoor living areas, pindo palm is an excellent choice. It makes a great accent anywhere in the sunny landscape where a tropical effect is desired. Be sure to leave room for the weeping branches!

Culture

Pindo palm is not picky about soil, provided the soil is well-drained and somewhat loose. We've had no problems growing it in the clay-based soil we have here in Georgia, provided the soil is amended with sand or sandy topsoil. Consistently wet or soggy soil can cause problems.
