Canary Island Date Palm Phoenix Canariensis Tree Seeds
Canary Island Date Palms are slow growing but do get huge! These are the gigantic palm trees that are often seen in the movies in shots of Los Angels or Las Vegas. Mature Canary Island Date Palms can cost anywhere from $4000 - $6000 per planting.
Lucky for us they are easy to grow from seed! They are native to the Canary Islands and get their nickname Pineapple Palm because if they are pruned, the bottom of the crown appears to have a pineapple shape.
