Where Can I Find Edible Palms in South Florida?
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:46:04 PM »
Hello All. I'm looking for acai and dwarf coconut trees. Any leads in the South Florida/Miami area? Willing to order with shipping if any knows of good sellers elsewhere. Thank you.

Everywhere! Serenoa repens Might not be the tastiest though :P

Saw palmetto, eh? Sounds like it will bring me as much happiness as my noni tree has. The wonderful aroma and flavor of rotten cheese

You have to mix Noni with things. He just said edible...nothing about palatable ;) Definitely more on the Famine Food section of the Grocery Isle.

Any other ideas? I've called Romney Farms several times, never an answer. Emailed them and my email was returned. Need new leads.
