A big and beautiful palm with green leaves that are sometimes distinctly glaucous on the underside, and sometimes on both sides. It has thorny petioles and big, round, yellow fruits, which add to its attractiveness.
Though locally common in the northwest of Mexico, it has not yet been used widely in cultivation.
