Canary Island Palm Appearance

Height and Trunk of the Canary Island Palm

This palm tree is substantial in size, reaching heights of 30-65 feet tall, with occasional growth reaching over 100 feet tall. Their trunk is large and solitary, with a grayish-brown hue. The trunk is usually covered in diamond-shaped leaf bases. These are slow-growing palms, typically reaching around 30 feet in height by 60 years of age.

Canopy and Fronds

The fronds of the Canary Island Palm are feathery and grand, growing to sizes up to 18 feet long. Each dark green leaf is covered in 80-100 rows of leaflets. The lower half of each stem is covered in 2–3-inch spines. They grow in an arching canopy made of 40-50 leaves.

Canary Island Palms are often pruned and trimmed to accentuate their appearance. When pruned, the bottom of the crown, or the nut, resembles a pineapple. This look has earned the alternate name of Pineapple Palm.

Flowers and Fruit

Small flowers bloom on branched stalks on this palm tree. The female palm flowers soon bear fruit that is yellow-orange and brown or even dark purple fruits. The fruit is oval or round, approximately ½ inch in diameter, and contains one large seed. These fruits are grown in clusters.

Considered a date, it is pulpy or fleshy in texture and is edible but is not enjoyable like other date species. The flavor of the Canary Island palm fruit is unpleasant.

Growing and Maintaining Your Canary Island Palm

The Canary Date palm is propagated by seed. This palm originates in the Canary Islands and is traditionally grown in Mediterranean climates, where winters are wet. They may also be cultivated in wet-summer or high-humidity, subtropical climates.

These palms grow well in full sun but can survive in partial shade. They prefer well-draining soil and moderate watering. Be aware that these are slow-growing palms, with their standard maximum size at 50-60 feet tall and 15-20 feet wide.

Maintaining the palm is fairly easy. Dead leaves will need to be pruned to keep their shape and appearance. Proper pruning will create the pineapple-shaped nut at the base of the fronds.
