    The palm has long and narrow frawns. The edges of the palm frawn are not spiney, but smooth to the tough. It produces a red fruit that is the size of a plumb tomato and is also smooth in texture. See pictures.

    The palm is grown in southern Florida - specifically Miami area.

    Send responses to kenester@earthlink.net if you can ID this species.

    Thank you,

    I'll guess Syagrus romanzoffiana.

    My first thought was also Wodyetia bifurcata, but my ID skills are legendarily bad.
