(Dawn suggests we could just put in a few links to some of their favorite sites, sites that might answer how many type of palms are edible, what elevation they grow at, what fertilizer they like, the fact that they come from Peru and were developed in the 50’s by a guy in Brazil who came up with a thornless variety great for eating, etc. Mary says Equador has a lot and that USA ID did project there, planting all these palms, only to have the government not be able to keep up the road maintenance as agreed. Any chance we can get some of this information?)
