I am enjoying the commentary about the various hybrids. THis is a palm I got from Merrill a few years back.

It is one of the Butia x Jubea hybrids Its getting pretty massive --- It sets fertile fruit and I dust wiht coconut or what ever pollen I have .

I put a 3 gallon and a milk crate in the front for comparison

Best regards

Ed

Nice, coconut pollen you say? It'd be interesting to see the resulting BuJubeCocos

It appears that the fronds have a twist to them, do my eyes deceive?

Thank you Ed, she's a beauty. I think the twist is characteristic of this cross.

Both trees came from Dr. Wilcox by way of Donald Coleman.

Both trees bear copious amount of viable seed. There are babies coming up everywhere.

Ed, that palm seems very similar to photos I saw of merrills , it is a beauty. I really like the way it puts up those straight twisted fronds.
Do you know if it was an F2 or an F3 ?

Jo, yours is amazing, the colour is incredible. I have what I think is a much smaller F3 here, but it will be some years to grow up. It doesnt have the straight fronds, but if it looks like yours I will be very happy !

Nigel,

if memory serves me right it is F3 --- I th ought it was a pure Butia but the Jubea characteristics are starting to present themselves after a decade.

Jules -- yours show the effects of full sun --- mine if planted by the boarder and a neighbor has a hugh pine that shades it more than I wlike --- I have a high water table here

Best regards

Nice butia x jubaea guys, they look so different from each other, and same here.

Just got these in the mail today from Tejas tropical nursery and David told me these were seedling he got from Patrick S.
Both are very different from each other but I like that. David I love them, and a really good price too. Trunk photo's also.

Note the excess fiber on the 3 gallons ---- this is what I see on my--- I think the fiber is the intermediate between thorns and bare petioles----

Freaky palm guy pointed out the twisted petioles also ---

Ed thats amazingly very fast growth for you, and JLeVert awesome palms, you both have twice the growing season than me. :) But I think mine should take off in a few years. One of them is going in part shade.
