Coccothrinax crinita seeds from Fort Myers palm park

Recommended Posts

PalmatierMeg

A week ago I went back to the palm park near the former railroad museum in downtown Fort Myers. The seeds I was hoping to harvest were still green but to my amazement I found ripe seeds on a plaque Coccothrinax crinita I have been following for years. In the past someone had always stripped then palm of all its seeds and indeed someone had snatched the low hanging fruit this time but my husband noticed an infructescence of purple seeds high up in the crown. He was able to cut it down with his long loppers. The cleaned seeds are smaller than the ones I found at NBG but have the same "lumpy" appearance. I also have several 100s of seeds rather than just 100 so more to pass around.

My crinita seeds and others I have collected are large and rosy speckled, then turn brown. I have never seen them uniformly purple like other Cocco’s. My guess is that’s a hybrid crinita.

Thanks, Charlene. You know more about this genus than I do. I amend the listing to indicate these seeds are of a C. crinita hybrid. It's a nice looking palm nonetheless.

I took the following photo of cleaned seeds. Although smaller, they have a "lumpy" appearance I haven't seen on most Coccothrinax and have an outer shell with a hole in the center where the stem attached. The actual seed is inside the shell.

And someone gave the old man a shave!

Hi I’m Jim Pridgen my Great Great Grandparents Joseph and Christiana Vivas first settlers of Fort Myers and their home once stood on the same grounds, they actually deeded the park to the City.  Do you and your husband visit the park often?  I’ve been looking for volunteers to donate a coccothrinax alta.  Any ideas?  My father had planted it mid 50s from Puerto Rico and this past yr the city had removed it.  I’m fighting the City very hard to keep the Park from going to big developers,

      This post is simply a suggestion for the site.  I am an amateur (home grower) that monitors the for sale/trade category, and one of the things I find annoying is that someone selling a palm will specify local pickup only.  Of course, that's quite reasonable from their perspective, but not really an option for me unless that person is located in northern california (unfortunately for me, 99.8% of these posts are in any one of a number of southern california communities, any one of a number of florida communities or texas) - as a practical matter, these communities are not accessible to each other as well - the problem then gets exacerbated when a grower (typically commercial grower) uses the forum as a product list with one entry for each type of their 47 palm species for sale (i.e., all for local pickup).  The effect from my perspective when there are a sufficient number of these posts is that it converts the category into a regional topic only, with subject matter unavailable to me (and others).  My suggestion is simply that under the topic for sale/trade that there be separated categories for local pickup only (perhaps for tags by region) and for sale via mail.

      I have two seeding Sabal minors on the edge of my Garden Lot. I grew them from seeds sent to me by a PTer who collected them about 10 years ago from a Sabal in Savannah, GA. He thought they might be a dwarfed variety of Sabal minor but I am not sure of that. Each palm is about 4' wide by 4' tall and is seeding. Is there any interest in these seeds from US PTers? I plan to send them uncleaned. Let me know soon as I plan to cut/compost them if no one wants them.

      Hi 
      I recently bought a Parajubaea but the seller didn't know the species. He sent me a picture of the seeds. So can somebody tell what it is or are the seeds more or less the same.  I lean to P. cocoides but I'm far from an expert.
      Thanks

      I pulled some of the purple seeds off my Burretiokentia hapala, cleaned them and dropped them in a zip lock baggy with some damp perlite and sphagnum moss.  I'm using a little heat, wrapping the bag in foil and leaving it on top of my water heater).  I'm curious what typical sprouting time is on this species if anyone has used this technique with this species.
