Trachycarpus martianus (Nepal) Palm Tree Seeds- Various Quantities - RARE

Trachycarpus martianus (also known as Martius' fan palm) is a species in the genus Trachycarpus from two distinct populations, one at 1,500 m (4,900 ft) in the Khasia Hills, Meghalaya Province, in northeast India, the other at 2,400 m (7,900 ft) in central northern Nepal. Other populations have been reported in Assam, Sikkim, Burma and southern China.[1][2] The main identifying characteristics are the regular leaf splits (to about half way), the coffee bean shaped seeds (similar looking to Trachycarpus latisectus) and the bare, as opposed to fibrous trunk. The new leaf spear and edges of the petioles are covered with a white tomentum.[3][4][5]

The species is named after the German botanist Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius (1794-1868).[6]

It is used in making Jhapi, a traditional head cover often used to felicitate guests in Assam.
