Big monsters

Stopped by to take a look at a few jxbf1. A few of these are getting pretty big @ close to 5'+ diameter.  Just as big as the fattest jubaea I've seen.

It does look like what I picture a jxbf1 should look like. A pregnant pindo right now. Was this a manual cross pollination? Jubaea is very dominant in trunk. Can’t see the overall crown or leaf detail. Anymore info On these Or pictures? ? Location.? I see a lot of sandy loam. Most palms love that if they have drip irrigation water. Are any coming to Texas?

This is interesting because these BxJ F2 seeds resemble the "grandmother" Butia seeds more closely and the JxB F2 seeds resemble the "grandmother" Jubaea seeds.  I have a BxJ F2 juvenile that looks exactly like pure Butia and displays Butia growth speed.  Makes sense.  And it was nice of Spiderman to pose in the first photo for you!  :laugh2:

I have an f1 j x b that looks like a pure butia. I'd call anyone a liar that told me it was a jxb but I sprouted it from a jubaea seed myself so I have to believe it. 

Over the past few years while walking through lotus land and a few other grow areas with 40+ mature palms ive learned that f1 hybrids can vary almost as much as a pure butia. Basically anything with butia genes can span the entire spectrum of physical attributes.  Cocosoid hybridization is a crapshoot.

I also gathered several thousand jubaea seed so texas will get another few thousand jubaea planted over the next few years, plus 20-30 more f1 hybrids based on historical natural hybrids.
