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.
