The Canary-Island Date palm or pineapple palm is originally from Canary Island, West Africa and flourishes in the warm weather of Florida. It is a slow growing palm, which can grow to a height of fifty feet or more. The palm has a large crown with 40-50 large fronds of size up to 18 feet and 80-100 leaflets. The trunk can be up to four feet wide. The palm has small cream colored flowers, and yellow fruits /dates which are half inch wide. Though the dates are edible, these fruits are not tasty, so they are usually eaten by birds. The dried fronds have to be trimmed periodically. We grow high quality pineapple palms from seeds.
