Planting & Care
Falling fruit can make a mess, so it is recommended that pindo palms be planted at least ten feet from decks, patios or paved surfaces. Since these trees grow so slowly, it is best to buy at least a three-year-old nursery stock tree unless you are extremely patient.
Sunlight: Full sun or partial shade.
Soil: Any type of soil as long as it is moderately salt tolerant and has good drainage.
Water: Pindo palms are able to survive hot and windy conditions, but it is always best to keep the soil adequately moist.
Temprature: Do well in colder regions where temperatures may dip to 5 F. (-15 C.).
Fertilizer: Feed the palm two or three times between spring and fall, using a palm fertilizer.
- Large, showy clusters of orange-yellow, juicy, edible fruits, the size of large dates, are produced and often used to make jams or jellies.
- This palm makes a great accent which fits well into small areas like courtyards and entries.
- It is a tough plant and survives in hot urban landscapes and even thrives there if watered and fed.
