Chinese Fan Palm - Livistona Chinensis

The Chinese fan palm is one of many palm tree species that are common in the south of Spain where I live. It is a popular palm for gardens for it ornamental value and moderate size. A great site for more information as well as seeds for this palm tree species is

The fruit of this palm tree is similar in size and shape to black olives or grapes. They hang in clusters of 50-100. Sometimes you have to get up close to see the fruit under the large fan type leaves of this palm tree.
The leaves are about 3-4 feet across and have thin pointy "fingers" that droop down creating an interesting ornamental effect. The trunk of this palm is not as thick as most. The palm in this picture had a trunk that was about 6-8 inches in diameter. - palm seeds, cycad seeds, banana seeds
