Spacer What is Palm Heart?     Spacer

Palm TreePalm Heart is the growing point of edible palms, consisting of the basal stem, growing shoot and the new emerging leaves. Many palms produce an edible heart.


A well known example is coconut which is used as the main ingredient in “Millionaires Salad”, however, obtaining this delicacy from coconut and most palm species usually leads to the death of the palm.


Palm heart is produced and consumed in many tropical regions of the world, including Central and South America, Asia, Pacific Islands, Indian Ocean and is a “bush tucker” food in northern Australia.
