Jubaea chilensis, Chilean wine palm
This magnficent palm is well known to the people, who are in love with palms.
There are only good things to say about Jubaea (Jubaea chilensis). It is huge, with extraordinary fat and massive trunk.n Its crown is magnificent. A close relative of the tropical Coconut palm, Jubaea produces small edible coconuts as well.
It endures much snow and quite a bitter freeze. We have a serious reasons to expect, that Jubaea will grow with minor damages in the mildest parts of Bulgaria (Sandanski, Black sea coast south of Achtopol, Assenovgrad area).
There is only one disadvantage with Jubaea, if any. It grows really slow. The seeds germinate extremely difficult, most often in several years. So, there is a reason for the high Jubaea prices. However, in the recent years more producers have entered this market and their prices fell down as low as possible.
The small palms on the pictures, that we offer at our nursery are at least 13-15 years old.
