Canary Island Date Palm
Popular name: Canary Island date palm
Scientific name: Phoenix canariensis
Native to the Canary Islands, this date palm welcomes visitors at the entrance hall of Inhotim. It is one of the most cultivated plants in the hot zones of the planet. Its flowers stand out due to their luminous orange-yellowish color.
Contrary to other date palm trees, its fruits are not edible for humans. Its sap, though, is extracted to produce a sort of honey, good for consumption.
