Jubaea chilensis Coquito de Chile

Seeds of Jubaea chilensis or Chilean wine palm. This palm dominates the landscape with it's thick muscular trunk. The straight gray trunks can grow to over 3 ft in diameter and heights of 80 ft. In older specimens, the trunk typically constricts near the top to form the brute's "shoulders" upon which rest a proportionally small "head" that is composed of densely packed pinnate leaves. They are held erect on short stems to form a crown that is about 30 ft in diameter. The leaves grow 12-15 ft in length and are a bit darker green on top with the lower surfaces a duller grey green. Purple flowers are on 4 ft  inflorescence (flower stalk) that grows hidden among the leaves. The orange fruits, called coquitos, are about 1.5 in diameter. Within the fruits are smooth tan seeds that resemble tiny coconuts. These have similar oily white flesh (endosperm) that tastes like them too! Zones 8-10.
