What an unusual plant/tree! What kind of berries?

Vogon Poet said...

This morning I was shooting exactly these around the harbor. Do you know what type of palms they are?

Babzy said...

Very beautiful tree !! Magic!

Sharon said...

Oh my gosh...we have similar photos today and it was totally random. You can see the fruit much better in your photo.

And a berry good time it will be.

JM said...

There are so many different species of palm trees and some of them are so similiar that I have no idea which one this is, although it's the most common around here.

Prospero said...

Canary Island palm?

Mirela said...

Do people eat these things? I have an identical palm tree at our holiday house and I was always wondering if we can eat these date-like thingies...

Jarart said...

Wow, another great palm shot! I just came from Sharon's post of a date palm.

Oh my, there's so many. What kind of berry are they? Are they edible? Or poisonous?

Leif Hagen said...

Blueberries?

joo said...

They are beautiful and I wonder if they are tasty:)

Mo said...

They can't be edible surely

Jacob said...

Oh, please! Don't remind me. We have tons of black berries falling all around our pool, staining the concrete and the pool!

We had the pods cut off awhile back and thought we were OK, but then came the rains and the darn things popped up again!

I never knew how messy palm trees could be. Should have planted date palms, but it's too wet here.

willow said...

Wow! Gorgeous!!

Joan Elizabeth said...

Like lots of others I'm wondering are the edible?

Virginia said...

This is a great shot of a plant we'll never see in New England, unless it's in a hot house.

Jim K said...

Neat picture, thats a lot of berries.

Small City Scenes said...

Wowee!! That is just amazing. What are the fruits? Are they berries or a type of date? Nothing like that would even think about growing around here. Well it might think about it--if plants think. Hmmmm!!

AB said...

It looks like it is overflowing with fruit.
