About three years ago, Pedro planted a triple-trunked Christmas palm (also known as a Manila Palm) in our front landscape island. This year it fruited for the first time. Look at how gorgeous these fruits are when they ripen. Plus, the squirrels love them (as if that's a good thing). That's how the palm gets in name - it puts on beautiful red Christmas ornaments this time of year. The boughs are so full of fruit, they're just barely holding on to the tree.
