Areca catechu seeding in Jupiter

Pretty amazing if you ask me. Jupiter is the most northern part of palm beach county, I'm actually in Martin county. When I planted this I thought maybe I'd get a year or 2 out of it, it's been 9. I hope they fully ripen over the winter.

Well grown and happy.

That parent could be the beginning of a cold-tolerant strain of Betel Nuts. Broad internodes, a lot of speedy growth; he is very happy there.
