HARDY CHILEAN WINE PALM Jubea chilensis
Jubaea, commonly known as the "Chilean wine palm" or "Chile cocopalm", and "coquito", is a very cold hardy palm tree! The most cold tolerant of all pinnate palms, hardy in zones 7-11! It is highly drought tolerant, and will also do well in cold or wet conditions. It does not need hot summers to grow well, and in winter it can take severe frost down to -16°C (3°F) unharmed. It grows well in many areas, and is most commonly found in California, Australia, the Mediterranean, Switzerland, the windy Atlantic coast of France, Britain, and the rainy west coast of Ireland.
These seeds are extremely large, like small golf balls!

Germination: These seeds should be sown in a sandy compost at any time of the year, and cover very thinly with sand to help keep them moist. Keep at room temperature, or slightly above. Germination can occur within 4-8 weeks, though some seeds can be a little slow and can take 6-12 months. Patience may be required.
