SEEDS


The red latan palm is an attractive, medium to large, fan palm originating in Mascarene archipelago. Its rounded crown is made up of numerous two to three metre wide palmate leaves, while the straight deep-grey trunk is lined with closely packed rings where the leaf sheaths have fallen away. When young, the stiff leaflets are distinctively tinged with red, hence this palm’s common name.
In spring it produces small yellow flowers in clusters of almost 2 m long, which appear between the leaves.

The fruit is, fleshy, 2-3 cm long and contains a single seed inside. The seed is pointed at one end and flattened at the other end. The flesh is edible but very bland.
