Not too bad looking. Maybe a little beat up but I'm still shocked how well those palms grow in SoFla.

I think the baby at your office fared better than the ANSG specimen.

Once in a while I see these in Florida full of fruit but they need to be realy protected and still have lots of sun. The fruit sure tastes good! :mrlooney:

I've seen pictures of this palm growing in presumably cold locations on the edge of the tropics in Asia, such as southern China, northern India, etc. Is the palm hardier than commonly thought, or does it just rebound quickly? Or are the palms in these "marginal" areas a hardier strain?
