I wasn’t really counting on posting today because I’ve had such a busy day, but now the only thing I have scheduled for the evening is relaxing, doing nothing and maybe watch a movie, before doing it, I wanted to upload today’s shot; I don’t know what this things are called, they were hanging from a palm close to where I live.

Have a great weekend!

Hola!

No estaba contando con hacer este post porque estuve haciendo mil cosas hoy, lo único que tenía planeado para esta noche era descansar, relajarme y no hacer nada, pero antes de empezar eso, quise dejar mi foto de hoy; no se realmente cómo se llama esto, es un racimo de algo que encontré colgando en una palma cerca de donde vivo.

Feliz fin de semana!

Day 120

Hey!

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.

Hola!

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.

Day 89

Hi Everybody!

Lately I’ve been posting very late and going away for a couple of days, and the reason is that I have some friends visiting me and we’ve been going out and getting to know different places, so I’m coming home late and very tired; today we did nothing but relax, went to the swimming pool, talked and had so many laughs together.

The day ended up with such a beautiful sunset, as the day was cloudless and the sky was blue, the sun painted the sky with beautiful yellow tones. I wanted to get the silhouette of a palm tree against the setting sun and frame them in the middle of some trees; that’s how it came out.

Hola a todos!

Ultimamente he estado actualizando mi blog muy tarde y yendome por algunos dias, la razón de esto es porque unos amigos están visitandome y nos hemos estado saliendo a conocer diferentes lugares, por eso llego a la casa tarde y cansado; hoy no ha sido la excepción, pero lo qué hicimos hoy fue muy relajante, disfrutamos de un día en la piscina, hablando y riéndonos mucho.

El día terminó con un atardecer espectacular; como en toda la tarde no hubo nubes, el sol al ponerse pintó el cielo con unos tonos de amartillo espectacular.

Me acerqué a unas palmeras, las enfoqué y traté de encuadrarlas en el mediop de algunos arboles; todo a contraluz para llegar a una silueta que se ve claramente en la foto.

Day 66

Hi Everybody.

This type of palm is known as “Pejibaye palm” or “Peach palm”, is native from Central and South America and can be found in areas with a high level of humidity. The palm can reach a height of 20-30 meters, its leaves 3,65 meters long. They need to be below the 2000 meters above the sea level to grow, and the fruit need a tropical climate and an elevation of 1700 meters above the sea level, otherwise, the production will be compromised.

It grows a fruit which is very popular, specially in the Amazon region, is named Pejibaye; before eating it, the fruit has to be boiled for 3 hours in salted water and then the skin has to be removed.

Pejibaye palm is one of the most dangerous trees due to the fact of having long and sharp thorns covering the trunk from the bottom to the top, therefore reaching the fruits is a very hard task , but natives have developed a sort of technic, where they scrap off parts of the bark of the tree.  The thorns of this palm are highly prized by some indigenous tribes, they use them to make needles and fishhooks.

Hola a todos.

Este tipo de palma se conoce como “Palma de corozo” o “palma de chontaduro”, es nativa de Centro Y Sudamérica, y crece en areas que tienen un alto nivel de humedad.

Las palmas de corozo necesitan estar en un clima tropical  por debajo de los 2000 metros sobre el nivel del mar, y para que sus frutos se den, deben estar debajo de los 1700 metros o de lo contrario, su producción se verá comprometida.

Puede crecer hasta alcanzar 20 o 30 metros de altura, sus hojas llegan a los 3,65 metros de longitud, y de ella crece un fruto que no es dulce, se llama chontaduro y es muy tradicional, especialmente en la región Amazónica. Antes de comerlo, éste fruto debe ser hervido por 3 horas y su cáscara tiene que ser removida.

La palmas de corozo son consideradas como uno de los árboles más peligrosos del mundo debido a que su tronco está lleno de largas y puntiagudas espinas desde la base hasta la cima, por ésto es muy dificil alcanzar sus frutas; los indigenas han desarrollado una técnica para hacerlo, la cual consiste en raspar la corteza del arbol y así eliminar las espinas. Éstas son muy apreciadas por los indígenas, que las utilizan para hacer agujas y anzuelos de pesca.
