The Christmas palm is an exotic palm that produces clusters of bright red fruit every year around the holidays. First, the Palm will produce small gray-green flowers. It is these flowers that will produce the fruit, and by late fall the fruits will start ripening. By Christmas time these fruits appear bright red and seem to decorate the Palm as someone would decorate a Christmas Tree. The fruit does not attract animals.

Our Christmas Palms come in pairs and in sets of three.
