Description: Very unique palm Leaves twist as the adult plant grows. They commonly have many thick prop roots near the base, which provide support as the tree grows top-heavy with leaves, fruit, and branches. These roots are adventitious and often branched. The top of the plant has one or more crowns of strap-shaped leaves that may be spiny. Fruit is segmented, and looks much like a pineapple when still on the tree. The plant has both edible fruits as well as long, fibrous leaves used in weaving.
