Yearning to plant a southern Palm even though you’re just north of the Mason Dixon line? Then warm up to the Pindo Palm. This date palm with the desert appeal can withstand the chilliest southern winters. It’s been known to shrug off frigid temps below freezing—even as low as zero. And it’s a gorgeous, low growing palm that will produce a hefty yield of juicy, amber-colored fruit.

A Name Well-Deserved
So succulent and delicious are the Pindo dates that they are often used to create savory jams and jellies, the very reason the Pindo is nicknamed the Jelly Palm.

The pale green leaves are what give the Pindo its character. Supported by inward curving fronds, the leaves are accentuated by a blue-grey sheen that gives it a distinctive look unlike any other Palm.

Although it won’t grow beyond 30 feet in height, the leaf span can spread to an impressive 20 feet, and its trunk base can exceed 2 feet. Still, the single trunk, slow root growth and extreme drought tolerance make it an excellent candidate for container growing. Pot them up and put them on the patio, the deck, or plant them in your yard to create a relaxing southern retreat. Whatever you decide, don't be left out in the cold. Order your Pindo Palms today.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Pindo Palm can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Pindo Palm


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pindo Palm.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Pindo Palm gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Pindo Palm again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Planted two Pindo Palms 10 years ago and now they are almost full height (about 13 feet). They do seasonally produce dates and drop a fair amount of fruit, but the rest of the time they are a dramatic tropical addition to our backyard landscaping. They preside over the edge of our large fish pond and lend a distinctly tropical flavor to the view. They make our yard feel like an oasis or vacation spot

how tall should I expect the pindo palm to be when I receive it? (How do I equate 3 gal to a height?)
Thomas B on Jun 10, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Thomas! My pindo palm was gorgeous when I received it last August. It stood about 3 1/2 feet high and the fronds were probably 4 feet. Unfortunately, living in New York and keeping it in the house it didn't make it through the winter. But, my windmill palm is outside and so far seems to be doing very well. I wish you luck with your pindo palm. They are such a beautiful looking palm. Debbie

A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
Best Answer: I have them in pots on the patio in Seattle. They grow well, however I do not believe at this point they are a fast growth palm which is perfect for my patio containers.
