      My second Sabal miamiensis, grown from a seed I collected from a plaqued palm at Leu Botanical Garden in Orlando, FL, has produced its first crop of seeds. They are by far the largest Sabal seeds I have ever seen in person. I posted about them in a topic I link to below.

      So, are these seeds the offspring of a pure S. miamiensis or a hybrid between S.m. and another Sabal species growing in Leu Garden? I'm not sure and I believe no one else is either.
      If you wish to learn more about S. miamiensis, read the following article from Palmpedia
      https://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/Sabal_miamiensis
      I have another Sabal miamiensis that I received as a tiny seedling in 2008. It has been seeding for years and I thought it had large seeds - until now. This year I cut off its inflorescenses so its genetics would not interfere with the newer palm. However, I have seeds of my older S.m. remaining from 2019 to compare. My younger S.m. flowered and set seeds earlier than than the older. Those seeds also ripened 6-8 weeks earlier than any other Sabal. I finished harvesting them earlier this week. Sabal palm seeds in Cape Coral generally ripen from late Oct. through Nov. Not only are these seeds exceptionally large but they are also fewer in number than I have seen on any other Sabal except uber dwarf Sabal minors.

      I want to make these unusually large Sabal miamiensis 'Leu Garden' seeds available to PTers. I am also offering the remainder of my older miamiensis' 2019 crop at a discount. Sabal seeds are not short-lived like some palm seeds and these nearly year-old seeds should still germinate well. Perhaps some of you might wish to grow both sets of seeds side by side for comparison, then report back to the forum with results. I can package both sets for combined shipping.

      Palms are seeding all over our 0.61 ac paradise. Some seeds are welcome - others not so much. In the welcome category are Gaussia maya and two varieties of Sabal minor "uber dwarfs" (my term). 
      Gaussia maya ripening seeds

      If Sabal minor is sometimes called a "dwarf Sabal" because of its shrubby nature, uber dwarf Sabal minors take dwarfism to a whole new level - they are dwarfs of dwarfs. One of the better known is Sabal minor Blountstown Dwarf (uber dwarfs are usually named for the community closest to discovery). Blountstown is a town in the FL Panhandle directly west of Tallahassee. This tiny palm seldom exceeds 18" tall by 30" wide. My original mother palm has been that size for the past 5-6 years and her offspring grow true. The leaves have an angle of 65-75 degrees. Crops of seeds number fewer than 100.

      Sabal minor Wakulla Dwarf is found on the coast of the Big Bend near the town of Wakulla, southeast of Tallahassee. Superficially, it closely resembles Blountstown Dwarf and you might wonder if both are the same variety, except their populations are 60 miles apart. Only DNA testing can determine how closely they are related. But in my experience growing both varieties, I found Blountstown Dwarf to be less finicky. I tried a number of Wakulla dwarfs and have succeeded at growing only two to adulthood. Should I chalk the experience up to my skill or lack thereof at growing them? My two Wakulla dwarfs are seeding for the first time this year
