Jubaea chilensis - Chilean Wine Palm


Jubaea chilensis - Chilean Wine Palm (Jubaea chinensis - Chilean Wine Palm)

This palm is pretty widely grown in parts of California. They have the largest trunk of any known palm...more than 3 feet in diameter.
They are slow growers and large trees are very old.

Sorry, for the unclear picture...the lighting was not very good.

It looks as if the trunk isn't round.

Marguerite:

I just notice your comment. This palm is native to central Chile...just north of Santiago.
