Pindo Palms For Sale
The Pindo Palm is commonly known as the Jelly Palm, because you can actually make jelly out of it! However, that really isn’t what makes this palm so popular.
Pindo Palms sales do well for one major reason, because they are cold-hardy palms.
When most people think of palm trees, they generally do not think of cold weather, and for good reason.
As a rule, palm trees tend to do better in warmer climates. However, there are a few that will still thrive in colder weather. In fact, palm trees can grow in about 40 states in the United States.
Pindo Palms and Cold Weather
The Pindo Palm is cold hardy down to between 12 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit, making it one of the most cold-tolerant palms available.
Some will even survive temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit, but anything below that could cause serious damage. This is somewhat surprising, considering that it originates in Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay, which are some of the warmest countries in the world.
This slow-growing palm will reach about 15 feet tall, and is both moderately salt and drought tolerant. It may spread up to 10 to 15 feet as well.
The fruit from this tree may cause some a mess, so it’s best to keep it away from sidewalks and houses to avoid problems.
Other Cold-Hardy Palms
There are several other cold-hardy palms as well, and each one has a different tolerance level and offers unique benefits.
Windmill Palm – This tree is native to central China, and is one of the most cold-hardy palms available. It will withstand temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
European Fan Palm – The European Fan palm is well-known for its ability to adapt to a wide variety of climate conditions. It will thrive in weather as cold as 10 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mule Palm – The Mule Palm is a hybrid between the Pindo Palm and the Queen palm. This is a man-made cross, and it is rarely found in nature. It will tolerate temperatures as low as 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
Queen Palm – This palm provides great shade in the hot months, but it will also tolerate temperatures as low as 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Some Queen Palm experts argue that they can tolerate much lower temperatures as well.
Washingtonia Robusta – This palm is also known as the Mexican Fan Palm, but don’t let the name fool you. It can handle brief temperature drops to as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chinese Fan – This canopy palm is perhaps the most cold-tolerant palm available. It can withstand temperatures as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit.
