Here are my Areca Palm Trees ( Dypsis lutescens ). They are doing very well. This is what I have just planted all around the perimeter of the yard. The Areca Palm is native to Madagascar as well. It seems that every cool plant is from Madagascar. I really want to visit Madagascar, I bet it is breathtaking. When this palm reaches the height of 3-6 feet it starts to produce fruit. The fruit is like any other palm fruit with the exception that you can eat the orange fleshy part. It is very sweet, maybe even to sweet.
