The fog is moving on and the sun is coming back to greet us today here at the farm! Summer weather is blooming with sunshine and heat, just the ticket for our palms. The roots grow deeper in the summer, the leaves fill out, and the seeds ripen for for the next planting season.
Speaking of seeds ripening, did you know you can eat a lot of the dates you see on palms? Most of them around here I wouldn't eat because they just aren't that sweet to my tastes buds but, the Butia Capitata or commonly known as the Jelly palm I would! These palms are gorgeous in there own right and are a slower growing palm with long curly leaves that have a nice blue/green hue to them. They produce seeds which then ripens into these tasty Jelly palm fruits!
If you hadn't tried them....just wait until the seeds get that orange and red coloration on them and then YUMMMM!! The taste of peach and strawberry come to mind when I bite into one! Juicy and firm, don't forget to watch out for that seed!
The Gregory family has made jelly out of this Jelly palm and its one for the books. A little pectin, some sugar, and a whole bunch of pitted Butia palms fruits. Its definitely something to try :)
Call us today to get a Jelly palm of your own or any other palm tree for your landscape or garden!
