Q.Christmas Palm Tree

Zone 33971 | Dottie Broderick added on December 28, 2016 | Answered

Our Christmas palm is three years old but has never produced red berries. What should we do to encourage this growth? Is it safe to remove the fronds when they are ready to fall?

Christmas palms usually produce the red fruit when they are 5 years old, so yours is siply too young. You can remove any fronds that have turned brown, but green ones should be left on the tree.
