Archonotophoenix maxima fresh seeds for sale

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

My big Archonotophoenix maxima overlooking the canal in the back yard is dropping marble sized seeds. Archo max, aka the Walsh River Palm from Queensland, Australia, is one of the rarest of the kings in the US. It has the largest inflorescense of all spp in the genus. It may also be one of the cold hardiest king palms, with reports trunking palms have survived lows in the mid- to upper-20s F. It can reach 75-80' tall with 12' leaves held rigid on little to no petioles. It is beautiful and fast-growing here in SWFL. Seeds germinate easily.

Archonotophoenix maxima seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot

                                                          100 @ $15.00 for the lot

Shipping = $5.00 for up to 100 seeds.   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

Response has been huge. I will attempt to send everyone at least 50 seeds but may not be able to fulfill larger orders in full. I will contact everyone interested. If I can't give you the full number of seeds you asked for I will make refunds accordingly. Thanks for all the interest.

Very cool. I think what’s interesting is your seeds are much more oval shaped than Alexandrae or Cunninghamiana. A lot of misinformation out there. So many palms being advertised at Maxima are nothing more than just robust Alexandrae being sold out there on the market. Yours on the other hand look like the real deal. Beautiful palm Meg!

      Elaeis guineensis, the African Oil Palm, is grown commercially for the oil in its seeds. It is a very large palm with a Jurassic Park look I really like. It reaches 70'+ tall and has a crown of 40 massive leaves - when we cut one down we have to slice it in two to carry it to the street. The trunk is covered with spirally arranged leaf bases. It is hardy to zone 10. Our oldest palm is now dropping large seeds that germinate soon after hitting  the ground. This is an eye-catching palm if you have the space for it and a palm you will never find at your local BB garden center. I have nearly 60 seeds at the moment and I am selling them in either two lots of 25+ or one lot of 50+
      Elaeis guineensis: TWO LOTS of 25+ seeds each @ $5.00 per lot
                                    Shipping = $5.00 per lot
                                    TOTAL = $10.00 per lot
      ---------------------------OR-------------------------------------------
      Elaeis guineensis: ONE LOT of 50+ seeds @ $8.00 for the lot
                                   Shipping = $6.00 for the lot
                                   TOTAL = $14.00

      Archonotophoenix tuckeri, aka the Peach River palm, is native to rainforest areas of Northern Australia. It is fast growing and reaches 60-65' tall in habitat. It prefers tropical conditions but established palms can survive brief drops to just under freezing and are so fast growing they quickly outgrow cold damage but they hate long periods of heavy frost. My A. tuckeri produces fruit that is the largest of all the Archonotophoenix spp I grow - I have all but myolensis. It is the fastest growing of my Archos, except for my monster A. cunninghamiana in the backyard jungle. It wants sun, heat and lots of water. Seeds germinate easily in the presence of warmth and moisture.
      Archonotophoenix tuckeri seeds: 50 @ $10.00 for the lot
                                                              100 @ $15.00 for the lot

      One of my Dypsis pembanas is dropping bright red seeds like there's no tomorrow. Dypsis pembana is a fantastic sparsely clustering, sometimes solitary palm and I can't say enough good things about it. It takes blazing FL sun, heat and humidity without flinching and an ultimate winter low of 28.5F with only a bit of cold spotting. I think it could be a solid zone 9b palm. Both of my specimens cluster but each has grown only 3 trunks, no more. It grows to a manageable size of about 25 feet. Seeds germinate readily and seedlings grow fast given lots of heat. This is a tough beautiful palm that needs to be grown much oftener.
      Dypsis pembana cleaned seeds: 50 seeds @ $10.00 for lot
                                                            100 seeds @ $15.00 for lot
      Shipping = $5.00 for up to 100 seeds.   No shipping outside the US. No shipping to HI

      Mother Palm

      I found the pictured seeds in the mulch on one of our walking paths. They are definitely cocoid seeds as you can tell by the three "eyes" on the closeup seed. Then my husband dug up a newly germinated seedling with the same seed attached. I believe they came from my oldest Elaeis guineensis/African Oil Palm. I thought oil palm seeds were larger than 1" x1" so can anyone confirm that's what these seeds came from?
      Also, is anyone interested in fresh seeds? I know African oils get a bad rap but it has neat "Jurassic Park" look if you have room for it.

      I received some Chamaedorea radicalis seeds about one week ago, and have had them soaking in water since (changing water out, of course). I’m about to sow them but I noticed there is a thin looking layer of shell or something around the actual seed, should I try to peel that off or is it fine if it stays on?
