Bring Southern Warmth and Charm to Cooler Climates

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.

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

Very healthy plants - Fast shipping - Well packaged
I bought 2 Pindo and 2 Needle Palms. All four came well packaged and looked very healthy. A bit larger than I expected to be honest. I would buy from these folks again. Can I get the Pindo through my winter here in Kingston, TN...that's on me...:)

Palm tree in New Jersey
So far I'm enjoying watching my Pindo Palm grow! It is planted next to the pool and seems to like it there. I really hope it makes it through the winter, Palms are my favorite trees and to have one in New Jersey is exciting. Other reviews say the winter well, so I guess I'll have to wait and see.
This Palm is easy to care for.

Perfect Palm Tree!
We were so excited to learn that we could purchase a palm tree that would survive in our area of Virginia! Our little Pindo Palm arrived quickly and was well packaged. So far, it has been in the ground about 4 weeks and it is doing well. We hope it continues to grow and thrive in order to bring a tropical feeling to our home in Virginia!

Little palm tree
The tree was in transit for 13 days and we thought that it would be dead. But to our surprise the tree looked excellent. My Husband planted it out front and gave it a good watering and hopefully it will grow to look like the photos on your web site.

Love them!
I ordered two of these palms for my outdoor patio. They were well packaged and arrived promptly. They look great in my large pots. I only wish that I had indicated that I'd like them to be similar in size as one is about twice the size of the other. But they are still beautiful. Now we will see if they can tolerate our VA winters!!

Our Pindo Palm
We love our little palm tree. It's taken awhile to start growing but has finally started. We're keeping ours in a planter while it's still small and will move it inside in the winter. Our plan is to plant it outside once we feel it's strong enough to withstand our winters. Even then we may build somewhat of a greenhouse around it just to be sure.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

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.

Planting & Care

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.

I recently took burlap off and
Palms are white look dead ?

Are they just dormant , will the color come back
Fred G on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Here in Oklahoma I wrap some insulation around the trunk during the winter. This works good. You are in a marginal weather acceptance area. That would most likely work for you too. It may be that sun was not able to get to the limbs when wrapped with burlap whiting the limbs. Hopefully green will return now that burlap is removed. If limbs brown out, the Palm is dead.

what palms can grow in idaho?
guido 7 on Jun 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most of Idaho is zones 6 and 5, and can grow the Needle Palm, which is the hardiest palm of all. It will reliably survive zone 6a winters, and will even survive in zone 5 with winter protection. If you live in the colder central section of Idaho, you can still grow a palm in a pot and bring it indoors or the winter. The smaller palms that lend themselves to container growing are: the Pygmy Date Palm, the Sago Palm, and the European Fan Palm.

what type of fertilizer do I use and how much for the pindo palms ?
captain dan on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Nutrients are vital for Palm trees to thrive. The sandy, well-drained soils they prefer have a tendency to allow nutrients to leach away quickly. You can apply palm fertilizers that contain the specific nutrients most suited for Palm trees. The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer containing 8-8-8 or a 12-6-12 fertilizer for quicker growth. To avoid yellowing and maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt.
