Carpentaria Palm, Carpentaria acuminata

Very similar to the Adonidia palm in appearance but has a taller more slender look and can reach an overall height of 40 feet. It is also a faster grower than the Adonidia. The seeds are red in color and can irritate tender areas of the body if contacted. Very sensitive to the cold and can be killed by heavy frost.
