Who just loves their Jelly Palm fruit flavour,bought from Daley's?
Daley's seedling 'variety' is a lot better tasting than the Jelly Palms growing in street plantings and private gardens.
Actually,as it is a seedling,it maybe cannot be called a 'variety'.
So what can it be called?
Highly recommended.
Get yours now,while stocks last.
It's a fave fruit.

There is a mature Butia capitata in the Maryborough gardens right on the corner from the old Post Office [ QLD ]. Might not be irrigated enough as the fruits were not large when I picked some almost 20 years ago . Here is one growing in Tully .. slow growing but worth it , very cold tolerant .

Is that Palm in the photo a tasty Daley's Jelly Palm,for the discerning connoisseur, or a run-of-the-mill, inferior and mediocre Jelly Palm?

It is most likely a less than tasty commoner.

Take a close-up photo of the fruit,which will help identify it's 'fullness'of flavour for the picky palate.

When does it fruit in Tully?

Those palms are growing on a now bypassed section of the Bruce Hwy . I doubt if it will ever set seed . No sign of any old infloresences on it . And I imagine it would be 20 years old . How long did it take for yours to fruit Vera ? And where are you ? Have a look at some of the pics from habitat on PACSOA

A Daley's Jelly Palm in Sydney :
* Took 5 years and 2 months to first bear
* Bore nearly 4 kg of edible fruit flesh
* 1 kg = 83.3333333333333333 fruit.
* Fruited for a 12 day period from mid February.

Another palm specimen planted at the same time is taking at least one year longer to bear fruit.

Why would that specimen in the photo not ever produce fruit and set seed,when they are self-pollinating?

My Daley's Jelly Palm appears to not like the recent Spring and Summer rains.
It hasn't flowered in November, or even December, and so it appears that it will not fruit at all early in 2011 due to no flowers and so no fruits.
A real drought-loving plant.
Great for dry air and fairly well watered soils.

Jelly Palm probably likes it dry at around November, ie late Spring, and maybe also December and January, ie during Summer.

Vera many plants need a chill to help set fruit , and um we don't get that up here , also we rarely get mangos here as it nearly always rains when its in flower .
I was unaware that there has been any selections of superior fruits on this species .

strawberry guava seedlings

Edible wattle seed acacia vic. seedlings

Bush lemon seedlings

Peach rootstock seedlings

Ice cream been seedlings

Lilly pilly syzigium paniculatum seedlings

Babaco wood

small rooted cuttings of the following

Grape
Issabella, flame seedles, maroo seedless and a local red variety that does well on the coast

Pomergranate
justiva, galosha azbek., shepards red, veles and kazake.

red dragon fruit

Vera, how big and how tall is your Jelly Palm tree? I have one 6 year old but kept it tiny in a pot, 2 ft tall. Wonder it can bear fruits in its current statue?

Probably doubt it fruitist. Palms dont bonzai like other plants, if they don't have at least average growing conditions they just stay small. I have some 15 yo Cocos palms here that's not even knee high. Still have juvenile fronds. Other seeds from the same infloresence I planted are more than 15ft high.

Would like to know if the usual Jelly Palm that Daleys are selling, Butia capitata/odorata, can produce fruit with just one tree. According to the description, 3 trees as required to ensure there is a male and female, for pollination, but there's no way I would have the space to grow 3 trees. Other people who are growing them write that they are getting heaps of fruit with just one tree.

Does anyone also know when the trees that are scattered around Melbourne are fruiting so I can try them first? Thanks.

My jelly palm has nice tasting fruit, but it's very fibrous. Wish I knew what to do with the copious fruit - any ideas?

I don't know what you can do with Jelly Palm Fruit, I have yet to taste them, but I have the same problem with Linospadix monostachya.

The Walking Stick fruits are a bit small and the flesh is scant but the flavour is crisp and juicy. I guess if you had enough you could make juice and strain out the seeds. Cheers!
