Native to Barbados Trinidad and Tobago and northern Venezuela. It is a solitary trunked palm than may reach 40 feet in height with a width of perhaps 6 inches.
I bought this palm from Kapoho Palms in April of 1998 and planted it in the ground in January of 1999.
It has grown very well and has produced many seeds. The first picture is from 2005, then comes one with seeds and the last is from February of 2008.
