    Description

Jubaea chilensis - Chilean Wine Palm

This listing is for a pack of 5 large and heavy seeds of Jubaea chilensis.

Jubaea is a monotypic genus (one containing only one species) that is native to isolated areas of Chile at altitudes of around 1200 - 1400 metres.  It is one of the hardiest palms of the pinnate leaved group (most hardy palms are fan palms).  It can take temperatures down to -15 C, but overall it requires mild winters and relatively cool summers.  It can grow (slowly) to absolutely massive proportions (for a palm).  The largest indoor plant in the world is a specimen of this palm grown in the temperate house of Kew Gardens.

It gets its common name because the sap was fermented to produce a palm wine, the problem with this is that unlike most palm wines, the harvesting led to the death of the tree as it had to be cut down to obtain the sap.

The tree will grow readily from seed and it is quite quick at first to put on growth.  Eventually the growth rate slows down as the palm puts on bulk rather than height.  It will flower when mature and these are followed by reasonably large fruits with an edible flesh, containing a large, hard seed.
