Common Names:

coco-babo (local name)

Distribution & Habitat:

Syagrus x costae (coco-babo) is a species endemic to the state of Pernambuco, thriving in the tablelands 250km west of Recife, around the city of Garanhuns (600m elevation).

Description:

The species is a nice looking natural fertile hybrid between S. cearensis and S. coronata, has large edible fruits 3cm diameter, and the seeds are rather difficult to germinate.

Culture:

Probably cold hardy and drought tolerant. In the natural habitat they reach 8 to 10°C in the winter and the average precipitation there is less than 800mm, and not so regularly distributed, some years it hardly rains there at all. It is common in semi-arid parts of my state, but seldom seen near our humid coast (Atlantic forest) or in Recife, and never employed in landscape here.
