I made several experiments with pollen from the Canary Islands... Butia eriosphata X cocos, got crossed with this result. Only one.

Don´t I venture to say that is a true "Butia X coconuts".

...woow!!...congrats Mauser...you do it!!

good new if the palm grows well outdoor in your climate...

please keep us update.

thank´s for sharing.

100_0858-1.jpgI aquired this palm about a year ago. The fronds seem similar to the small one that you have.It is a beatiful specimen. It is about 16' overall. The part of the frond that is not seperated is very stiff. I have about 100 butiagrus and this is unlike any of them.

That palm has the virus that many in the Butiinae tribe suffer from. I forget its actual name but there are three in my neighborhood that are affected by it with entire or unsleeved leaflets.

Mauser, fascinating plant. Do you remember or did you photograph the seed that this palm came from? Did it look different (larger etc.) than the seeds that Butia normally sets?

A little pollen from the Newport Beach coconut someday and we might get a hybrid that could grow up here.

The seed was more or less equal than others. I hope that in future the seeds from this plant are slightly larger than the Jubaea. If they were bigger, better

I haven´t pictures because I was not quite sure the result.

Good job Mauser! I am rooting for everyones BXC.N to turn out to be the real deal. That way we can see if they produce viable fruit which i doubt but who knows? Time will tell the story.

Keep up the good work!

I have a little of coconut pollen yet. But it has frozen two years. I don´t know if it´ll works.

I will pollinate a spathe of the Butia capitata with it very soon. I do not expect anything.

Hi maestro.

Thanks, I'm glad you're here.

I´m only temporary.

interesting question, for how long would be palm pollen generally fertile or in this case coco pollen?

I can pollinate a butia or syagrus but must "import" the coco pollen.

Maybe fruits of a "butia x coco n." would produce fertile seeds in comparison to a "syagrus x coco n."

Most (or all) syagrus hybrids are infertile.

I´m also curious to see how Mausers palm grew.

Is it a var.spicata or a real Butia X Cocos

Anyone know if this ended up being the real deal? Granted it's an old thread but some news would be interesting to all.

Hi. I've seen this old. The palm tree lives but it is very demanding with food, it does not like my stony soil, and got yellow . I recently gave him a severe pruning. Someday I'll put current photos. surely on another floor it would have been better.  NoI no sure it was a cocos. A greeting.

There was one around here that looked like that. I'll take a ride today & see if it's still there.

Wow, looks like a dead man walking...too bad it wasn't treated (if such treatment exists) years ago to save it.

Some updated photos ... We'll see what kind of seed it produces to see the percentage of coconut.

I started again with the love of palm trees and I'm doing interesting crosses.

If I would imagine a butia x coconut, that would be it (except the yellowing) that's a bummer

I would bet that is actually the real deal.  Amazing to finally see a photo of a likely specimen.
