Coccothrinax crinita seeds from Fort Myers palm park

Recommended Posts

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.

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,
