Sabal minor Seed Question

Recommended Posts

PalmTreeDude

Since I'm at the beach, there are a ton of Sabal minor around and they are absolutely loaded with unripe seed. If I were to take off one of the stalks from the base, do you think the seed would ripen all of the way, or is it too early to be doing that?

You need to wait.  That seed won't be ready until Halloween.

Agree. Seeds picked while unripe will not mature. Around here Sabal seeds start ripening late Oct. on. Fruit is black when ripe.

I agree with everyone. Sabal minor doesn't ripen here until late October/early November.

      Tell me how hardy Sabal Blackburn? There is very little information about him. Which one of you is growing?

      I potted these sabals about a month ago and they don't seem to be doing too well. I ordered all three of them online from a palm nursery in Florida and they did arrive with a few wilting/discolored fronds. What worries me is that there has been little to no improvement in their condition since. I water them once every 1-2 days, make sure they get plenty of sun, and I potted them in well draining, palm specific soil. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but any tips would be greatly appreciated. (BTW: I plan to overwinter them inside in pots and then plant them in the ground next spring if they're still alive)
      Here's a few pictures of them:

      New York City is a high end zone 7b, cold hardy palms are very rare, but they’re there if you know where to look. Tropical palms, however, are all over the place during the warmer months.

      I just potted some sabal minor "Louisiana" seedlings I purchased online from a palm nursery in Florida. I've done some research on this variety and my plan is to overwinter them inside and then plant them in the ground next May. If any of you have had any experience with this specific palm in I would appreciate some advice/tips. Thanks
