Parajubaeas in the Presidio of San Francisco

Recommended Posts

I’ve been watching these trees grow the past few years and thought I would share a couple of photos. they are located in the Presidio of San Francisco. I think they are all torallyi except for the one with me in vest - I think that’s sunkha. I’m 6’1” for reference. The one at 58 Presidio could be cocoides? It’s smaller in stature than the surrounding torallyis. 
 

 I’m soooo glad I didn’t plant P. torallyi in my small garden after watching them grow in open spaces!

Yes, but not currently. I’ve seen mature seeds on the largest palm in the past and new flowers are emerging now.

Yep! I saw this mule on Cannery Row in Monterey CA and I thought it might be a Parajubaea until folks on here confirmed otherwise.

Any idea how long they've been in the ground for?

I’m not sure. I only noticed them in 2019 when I became more interested in palms (and also began hiking different routes through the Presidio).
