Sorry for the late reply, but I've been busy... When you have the time. I would very much like to see the conditions that your Jubaea grow's in (microclimate) in that somewhat warm Australian province.

Hey Tom,

All my palms are in pots at the moment so not sure if there’s any value posting pictures of the Jubaea. Construction is currently underway on our house, so hopefully this time next year I’ll start a thread to document the garden as it evolves.

Can you share an updated picture of this special cross?

Not much value in posting a picture at this stage as it hasn’t changed much. It’s currently pushing a second leaf so I’ll update when that’s out.

There are a few reports/threads online that claim to have a cross with Cocos nucifera, but they tend to be quite vague and inconclusive. The objective of this thread is to document the process and provide ongoing updates until the hybrid is either confirmed or dismissed. 

What has been done with Jubaea X Cocos nucifera crosses?  The two are so similar in so many ways undoubtedly related to common ancestor during the last 55 million years of the Cenozoic that it seems a natural cross.

I recall someone mentioned Patrick Schafer tried Cocos nucifera on the late Dick Douglas’s Jubaea, but I don’t think it was successful. That doesn’t mean it’s not possible though as each parent and pollen donor are different when it comes to compatibility, plus the climate in Walnut Creek, CA may not be conducive to such a pairing. 

I agree, Jubaea x Cocos would be the holy grail of cold/cool hardy hybrids. Problem is gaining access to a mature Jubaea to work on. I’m at least 30 years from my own maturing.

Very interesting cross, this really might be the holy grail of cocoid palms.

It’s almost pushed out a second leaf. Not much to report at this stage, but I’ll post a picture this weekend.

2nd leaf doesn’t appear to offer confirmation one way or the other. I’ll update when the 3rd leaf is on its way.

Thank you very much for the update!  I am curious about your thoughts about if/when/where to plant that palm in the ground.

No immediate plans as our house is currently under construction and won’t be handed over until August at the earliest. Personally, I don’t like planting palms too early anyway, so normally wait until they at least get past that awkward and vulnerable seedling stage and are robust (normally fully pinnate/palmate). In terms of where, if it turns out to be the intended hybrid, it’ll have a prominent position in full sun. If it’s pure Butia, I’ll plant it in the green waste bin 😂.

If it is a butia might as well send it to me 😆

One of the main reasons I emigrated to Australia (from UK) was to indulge a passion for growing palms and to have a crack at creating cocoid hybrids. We landed in Adelaide June 2019 and I immediately got to work producing Butia odorata x Jubaea chilensis F1, Butia odorata x Parajubaea torallyi var torallyi F1, and Butia odorata x Syagrus schizophylla F1. We moved to the Gold Coast, Queensland January 2022, where I've since made Butia odorata x Syagrus coronata F1 and what I hope is Butia odorata x Cocos nucifera F1. 

There are a few reports/threads online that claim to have a cross with Cocos nucifera, but they tend to be quite vague and inconclusive. The objective of this thread is to document the process and provide ongoing updates until the hybrid is either confirmed or dismissed. 

I should state at this stage that I believe the Butia odorata x Cocos nucifera F1 hybrid attempt has been a success, therefore from this point forward I will call it Buticocos nathanii.

 

Thought you were going to call it Buticocos austenii

On its 3rd leaf. I still reckon it’s the real deal.

Thanks for the update!  Do you possibly have a similar age Butia seedling for a side-by-side photo comparison?  Pardon me for suggesting more work for you.

I don’t have any Butia at a similar age unfortunately.

I was also curious to see it after one year growth.... 😀 I would expect some thick kind off Cocos leaves at this stage. I hope it' s the real deal....

Well that sucks!!! Leaf and spear pulled this evening. I’ll keep it just in case, but it’s not looking good.
