HIMALAYAN FISH TAIL PALM (Caryota maxima var himalaya)

16,30 

A unique palm tree, whichever way you look

Whether due to its rapid growth, its imposing size, the intense green color of its crown, or the unusual shape of its leaves, this palm tree stands out for its enormous originality. Its bright, deep green leaves, which give it its vernacular name, look more like fern leaves than typical palm leaves. They are large, tender, bipinnate leaves, whose leaflets capriciously cut in the shape of a fan remind us of the caudal fins of a fish.

Habitat: In mountain forest, up to 2400 meters above sea level.

Distribution: Central and eastern Himalayas.

Description: Single-trunked, dioecious palm, up to 30 meters tall, with a grayish trunk with foliar scars, bipinnate leaves with wide tender leaflets with toothed edges of intense green color and up to 5 meters long, pendulous greenish inflorescence up to 1.5 meters long and small dark purple fruits.
