PINDO PALM , Butia capitata
Yearning to plant a Southern Palm even though you're in the north? Then warm up to the Pindo Palm. This date palm with desert appeal can withstand the chilliest Southern winters. It's been known to shrug off frigid temps below freezing, even as low as 20℉. And it's a gorgeous, low-growing palm that will produce a hefty yield of juicy, amber-colored fruit in warmer climates.
Basically, its name is well-deserved. So succulent and delicious are the Pindo dates that they are often used to create savory jams and jellies, which is why the Pindo is nicknamed the Jelly Palm
