Pindo or Jelly Palm (Butia capitata)
Central Brazil & Argentina
Pindo palm is the hardiest feather-leafed palm for landscape use.
The arching, blue-green leaves are crowned with many upward pointing
leaflets that form a pronounced V-shape. This
species can vary considerably in nature, the forms differing in ultimate height,
trunk thickness, leaf color and amount of arching, and fruit color and taste.
Pindo fruits can be very sweet with a flavor some find reminiscent of a
pineapple/banana mixture. Moderate watering with occasional feeding.
