Peach Palm seeds 5 seeds for 5 USD /Bactris gasipaes/
« on: July 15, 2017, 02:47:32 PM »
The fruits are edible and very nutritious when cooked. The fruit contains extremely high levels of vitamin A with up to 1,500% of the recommended daily allowance in a 100g serving. Peach-palms are also cultivated for the heart of palm and the trunk can make valuable timber.
Fruit
The edible fruit hangs in clusters of 50 to 300 fruit and may weight 25 lbs (11.4 kg). There may be up to 5 clusters of fruit on a plant at a time. The time from flowering to fruit harvest is about 8 to 9 months.
The fruit is a drupe and is yellow to orange to scarlet or brownish, turning purplish when fully ripe. The fruit may be oval or round, 1 to 2 inches in diameter, with a 3-pointed calyx at the stem end. The peel is thin. The pulp may be yellow to light-orange, sweet, dry, and mealy; fruit usually contain only 1 black seed enlcosed in a thin endocarp. Some fruit are seedless.
Heart of Palm
The central white, soft core of young pejibaye stems is edible. Young suckers 3 to 4 ft high (0.91.2 m) high are cut at their bases and the leaves and outer leaf stems are removed until the central core is exposed. The core is then cut loose and harvested for eating.

"the rachis is branched with thousands of male flowers intermixed with a few hundred female flowers, which are slightly bigger than the males"

Locals cook it in salty water. It is somewhere between potato, sweet potato and pumpkin.

Got Peach Palm from Mira (nimfasnursery) today. The seeds look good with enough moist although transit time was very long.
