Why plant Pindo Palm?
Precious Pindo Palms! There is truly nothing bad to say about these interesting looking palms and they really know how to bring the tropical vibe to your landscape. Pindo Palms have pale green leaves that gives the Pindo its true unique character, but don't forget about its inward curving fronds that adds an interesting texture to any landscape. Pindo Palms are an all around tree, and even those North of the Mason Dixon Line can enjoy the tropics in their own backyard when these are planted in containers! These palms can withstand some of the chilliest Southern winters without batting an eye! Let's chat about the Pindo dates, these little fruits are perfect for making jellies and jams because they contain a wonderful amount of Pectin. Pectin is used to makes cloudy wines, which is why you may see this tree nicknamed as the 'Wine Palm.' Jams and jellies aside, you can eat these yummy fruits right off the tree! Just make sure to spit out the fiber-y seed! The Pindo Palm is a key detail you won't regret adding to your summer tropical landscape!
These fun trees are native to Brazil, Uruguay, and Argentina. And now, soon living in your backyard! This tree has done a great job of charming its way to the US!

How To Plant Pindo Palm
If you plan on potting your palm tree, keep in mind you'll need to repot it every other year - be sure to increase the pot size by two inches every time. This will give your palm plenty of space for its roots to spread. If you are planting in the ground, choose a location where this palm can sun bathe all day long—they love the sun. They can tolerate just about any soil type but prefer any kind that is well-draining. Dry and hot climates are tolerated but shade and adequate moisture will be needed.
How To Water
Once established, these palm trees will be drought tolerant. After initial planting of your new palm, it will need frequent watering to get comfortable in its new home. Base your watering schedule around the average rainfall in your area.
How To Fertilize
Feed your palm two or three times between spring and fall, we recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food in granular form around the base of your palm and water it in. This way, the nutrients are delivered right into the root system!
How To Prune
Palm trees will need very little pruning. Remove the browning fonds and old fruits, this may be done at any time of the year.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
