Day 120


I found this buch of small fruits hanging from a palm; I was curious about what kind of palm it was, after investigating a little bit I found that it was a canary island date palm.

They can grow until they are 30 meters high, their leaves can be 3 meters long and have about 80 leaflets on each side of the central rachis.

They are ornamental plants that can be planted anywhere in the world where the temperate is warm.  It can also be planted in cold areas, where the temperature goes down to -10ºC, but they will need an special care and protection.

Their fruits are oval, yellow and orange and they are about 2 cm long and 1 cm diameter and containing a single large seed; the fruit pulp is edible.

Before I finish this post, I would like to thank to Miranda Wieczorek and Spyder Creations Photography, who have given me an award for my blog.

Encontré este racimo de pequeños frutos colgando de una palmera, y me dió mucha curiosidad saber qué eran y de qué tipo de palmera provenían; después de investigar un rato, encontré que era de una palmera canaria.

Las palmeras canarias pueden crecer hasta alcanzar una altura de 30 metros y sus hojas alcanzan los 3 metros. Estas palmeras son ornamentales, se peuden plantar facilmente en cualquier parte que tenga una temperatura cálida, aunque con un cuidado especial y mayor protección pueden plantarse incluso en zonas donde la temperatura baja a -10ºC.

Sus frutos son amarillos y naranjas, ovalados, no superan los dos centímetros de largo y uno de ancho, además son comestibles.

Datos de la foto: Nikon D5000 ; Lente: Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 44 mm, ISO 800; f/5,3 ; 1/50 s.

Críticas, comentarios y/o sugerencias son bienvenidas.
