Palm - Acai

Just read that suckers grow around the palm, which bear fruit to, so some people cut down the main tree, because they get so big and just harvest from the suckers; so you wouldn't need to climb it! :)

Keep in pot culture until too large then plant in gound in frost free area - top of the slope if you are in a frost prone area. Fortunately human induced climate change means they are more likely to thrive here in the subtropics now

I like palms and one that fruits is a bonus. Apparently this one is praised by health food critics for its antioxidant content. The palms looks a bit scraggley- it is similar to a Alexander but seems to keep dead leaves rather than shedding. It seems t...
