About Pygmy Date Palm

Phoenix roebelenii is a small to medium-sized, slow-growing slender tree growing to 2 to 3 metres (6.6 to 9.8 ft) tall. The leaves are 60 to 120 cm (24 to 47 in) long, pinnate, with around 100 leaflets arranged in a single plane (unlike the related P. loureiroi where the leaflets are in two planes).

Each leaflet is 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 in)15 to 25 cm long and 1 cm broad, slightly drooping, and grey-green in colour with scurfy pubescence below. The flowers are small, yellowish, produced on a 45 cm (18 in) inflorescence. The fruit is an edible 1 cm drupe resembling a small, thin-fleshed date.

Pygmy date palm information allows that this particular genus is known as a date palm due to its often sweet, sugary fruit pulp found in some species of Arecaceae.
