Brahea edulis is commonly known as the Guadalupe Palm.  It has been native to the Guadalupe Islands but is becoming quite popular in other parts of the world. The fruit it bears has a sweet pulp.  Brahea edulis has bluish-green fan-shaped leaves and grows to about 30 feet tall.   The Guadalupe Palm sheds dead leaves and scars form on the trunk from where the leaves once emerged.  It likes full sun with occasional summer watering.
