    Mexican fan palm seeds

    In a parking lot near my home there is a group of fan palms, I believe Mexican fan palms. They drop fruit with seed in large numbers. Cars drive by and crush the fruit and the seeds are undamaged.
    I thought some of you might like to have a few. I gathered up a handful the other day. They are about the size of an M and M. These seeds and similar ones end up in gardens and sprout randomly. Here are a few pics.
    Let me know if you are interested, post here, and pm me with mailing info, plan on about 3 - 4 bucks for some sort of small package or padded envelope.

    Those are Cabbage Palm or Sabal palmetto. Neat palm, native to the southeast.

    In addition to the coasts, they'll also grow inland, in a habitat called a coastal maritime forest:
