A friend cut a long pod off his Pindo Palm. I put it in water and it burst open exposing seeds inside. Can I plant those seeds to start a palm tree?

If it has not gone to fruit yet, then there is likely no viable seed. The fruit are what houses the seed embryo until it can mature into something that will be viable.

If you can send a photo of what you have found then I can help you to find out what it is.
