Brahea edulis. GUADALUPE PALM. Guadalupe Island, Baja California
PALMAE (ARECACEAE) (Palm family)

Two specimens of this fan palm can be seen north of the Mausoleum. Its leaves are about 3 feet long, folded as a fan, and with a stalk free of spines. It has great masses of black shiny fruit. Our trees were shipped from Baja California to Stanford around 1900. Other examples at Raines Houses near the community Bldg.
