Buildable 4.5 acre palm grove west of Ormond Beach FL

Recommended Posts

swolf

Buildable 4.5 acre palm grove (licensed nursery) located about 20 minutes west of Ormond Beach Florida.  Square shaped parcel was sub-divided, so each parcel can be built upon if so desired.  Paved road in residential neighborhood but properly zoned for AG too (A-3).  WELL-DRAINED soil (sand hill).

In 2009 I had the property cleared and fenced in.  The next year I had the 500 Sq. ft Barn substantially improved/rebuilt.  

Collectors mix of cold-hardy palms with dozens of F1 Jubaea x Butia and/or backcrossed BJx Jubaea.  Most of the F1 Jubutia are now producing seed.  Substantial business opportunity for east coast production of Jubutia of F1 genetic character.  There’s also substantial interest in hand-made hybrids like Jubutyagrus.  I have two ‘Mountain Queens’ that Nigel Kembrey kindly sent me seeds of years ago.  They should soon flower.

Other palms can be dug & sold, or kept to admire.  These include about 30 Jubutyagrus, 5 large Butia x Parajubaea and one ultra-rare Jubaea x Queen.  Several Sabal Louisiana (one mature) from an outstanding blue specimen.  A few smaller Blue Brahea Dulcis, Super Silver, Trachy Princeps,Livistona Mariae hybrids, and 3 nice silver Bismarckia from especially cold-hardy parents.

$200k purchase price or for buyers capable of pursuing the commercial opportunity, a partnership is possible.  That next phase is too much for this one man.

Serious inquiries can PM me.  Now how about a few photos already? :-). First few are of thick-trunked Jubutia — the silver specimen hasn’t flowered just yet.

 Jubaea x Butia F1 seeds vary by specimen, but an upright one produced the largest.  Two Butia x Parajubaea photis along with one Syagrus ‘Mountain Queen’.  Finally a photo from last year with my Jeep so you can better appreciate Jubutia size.  I do have a number of younger specimens as well.

Land in FL is selling like mad, I hear. 4.5 ac properties don't just fall from the sky. Anyone who is looking to or thinking of moving here ought to check it out.

A few more Jubutia photos.  One JxB F1 has long recurving leaves.  Funny how they still vary even when exact F1 siblings.

This BJxJubaea has glaucous underside to leaves but the JxB F1 look more like Jubaea.  Waiting on the silver one to flower so controlled crosses can be made — should eventually produce some sweet field-grown specimens, even allowing for genetic variance from crossing two F1s.

The Jubaea in Chile that have silvery undersides to their leaves look awesome to me.

      Question...we got iced over yesterday which brought out an observable change in my Needle and Trachy’s palmate leaf segments:


      The segments get a striped appearance with different shades of green. I’ve seen it every winter, especially when temps are consistently in the teens or twenties...my Minors do the same thing. It obviously has something to do with cold hardiness...the first picture is my Needle and much less pronounced than my Trachy’s reaction and arguably, the Needle is more cold hardy than the Trachy...just wondering...

      Freezing nighttime temps are arriving over the next 14-consecutive days...predictions have 14-nights below freezing (Fahrenheit) but only two daytime temps below freezing. For the cold hardy, this seems like a reasonable scenario as day temps will allow for recovery from the night’s freezes. In that period, there will be two consecutive days/nights below freezing...one at 25/12 and the next at 30/19. My palms have had worse long-term freezes than this...but I’ll wrap the Trachy’s trunk for the two consecutive days below freezing. The Sabal Brazoria and the Chamaerops Humilis are protected as usual all winter but will let the Sabal Minor straplings tough it out with just frost cloth on the ground around. Both 24-hour, back to back periods below freezing have sun to a degree, so given their nice south face, wrapped umbrella covered cages and frost cloth ground cover I think we’re set for a reasonable episode for my cold hardy palms.
      Question...given that glucose storage in evergreen plant cells helps give them the anti-freeze they need to keep their cells from freezing solid and dying, if palms are periodically watered with a mixture of molasses and water (which I do with a gallon watering can spring and summer) is there a chance they take in the glucose in the molasses and move to store it in their cells? Crazy notion and such a regimen, if anything, feeds the bacteria in the soil, thus benefiting the soil...but any expert opinion on the regimen actually resulting in an uptake of glucose by the palm Itself would be appreciated.

      My cycad hasn't flushed in two years. Is there anything I can do to make it flush this spring/summer? It's a taitungensis x guizhouensis.

      One of the nicer and somewhat eagerly awaited aspects of cold hardy palm growing...
      and one of the cold, hard realities...

      I was going through old pics and came across this unusual palm I took a photo of at Silver Springs.  At first I thought Phoenix Roebelenii, after a closer examination it looks like an old pygmy Butia.  It's a sweet looking palm and wanted to share.  I would like one for myself now.  What do you think?
