About Pindo Palm

Pindo palms, also known as jelly palms, grow slowly to a mature height of 15-20 feet with a trunk diameter of 1 to 1 1/2 feet. The fruits of this graceful palm are light orange to brownish red and can be used to make jellies.

 

The seeds can even be roasted for a coffee substitute. Pindo palms are often used as a specimen tree and draw a variety of wildlife with their sweet fruit.

Pindo Palm 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.
Watering Pindo palms are able to survive hot and windy conditions, but it is always best to keep the soil adequately moist.
Soil Any type of soil as long as it is moderately salt tolerant and has good drainage.
Temperature 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.
