Palm description:

 

Jubaea chilensis (Wine palm) is a single-trunked, pinnate-leaved palm growing to 20-25 m tall. The trunk is the stoutest of any palm, commonly a metre diameter at the base, sometimes up to 1.3 m diameter, often widest in the upper part of the trunk, with smooth grey bark.

 

 

The dark green pinnate leaves are 3-5 m long, with pinnae to 30-50 cm long closely spaced along the rachis. Despite the length of the leaves, they often look disproportionally small compared to the massive trunk, particularly on larger trees. The leaf bases persist as grey-brown stubs for a while on young trees, but fall cleanly on mature trees

 

This impressive slow growing palm is distinguished by its wine bottle shaped trunk. Endemic to Chile, there are over 100,000 specimens growing on steep ravines at high altitude. Mature trunks yield syrup, sometimes harvested locally to make palm wine or treacle.  The seeds are edible too, with the appearance and taste of mini coconuts. Jubaea will thrive in locations that have mild winters and cool dry summers. It can tolerate temperature dips down to -15°C (5°F).
