Any interest in Sabal bermudana seeds?

Recommended Posts

Wondered if any interest in a bumper crop of seeds from this big mama? It has survived for 20 years without protection and has been flowering fruiting for a decade atleast. I usually throw out the seeds but wondered if I had been wasting a coveted commodity? Let me know- it is a beauty, but slow growing.

Y'know, looking through my container ranch, I don't think I have any fan palms. . .

:D

This topic should be moved to the For sale section. Might generate more response.

Thanks guys for messages. Yeh, wasn't sure where to post as I was offering for free so didn't want to tie up the for profit section and I think it said something about not being able to if not a paid member of society ( I was for nearly 30 years until "my bottom line" blew out from under me!).

Anyway to answer Ken Johnson. I obtained this palm in a 7 gal back at a Texas Palm Society member sale in the early 90's. It was labeled bermudana ( and from a trusted source). It has grown into a fine 15 ft. tall beauty, but sure took it long enough. My mom has a double trunked
mexicana that shows the obvious difference in leaf size, color, and growth form ( I bought at the same time). Her's has nearly 15 ft of trunk now, mine only about 6 ft. But the leaves are so damn big and blue! Gorgeous, and a heavy flower producer, not that mexicanas aren't as well! Anyway, I sure enjoy her, and so do the lizards and yellow jackets! LOL
