Fiji Fan Palm
One of the few in the genus not to come from Hawaii though it was probably introduced
into Fiji. Perhaps the most widely planted Pritchardia, it is a large, unmistakable,
and attractive tropical palm with stiff, upright, fan-shaped leaves held erect.
The segments are many and fine, the trunk, growing up to about 30 feet (10m), is
slim and covered with old leaf bases, especially near the top. A group of these
palms is a stunning sight indeed. The
flowers grow among the leaves and
the small, round fruits, black when
ripe, are produced in abundance.
