Green Queen Palm Seeds?

Posted by ezequiel_2008 CA (My Page) on

There's a beautiful queen palm tree at work with an unusually thick pale trunck and it is giving some green fruits (seeds?).I don't know if these are the seeds, but I opened one and it has some liquid inside. I would love to be able to germinate these seeds and hopefully be able to grow a similar palm. Any advice? Are these really seeds? Should I dry these fruits (seeds) or should I plant them right away. I would appreciate any suggestions?
Thanks a lot!

Let them ripen on the tree. They'll be ripe when they turn orange. Then cut them down and let them dry before planting.

They look a bit like acorns when immature

RE: Green Queen Palm Seeds?

I had the best luck with those that had fallen from the stalk. I just planted in a pot directly with no cleaning.
Got 47 plants from 50 seeds . Now what do you do with
47 queen palms ?? lol The seeds originate from a separate stalk no mistaking them for anything else.
Good luck gary

Our tree is dropping the seeds while they're green. Will they sprout?
