Palm Tree for ID : Lalbagh,Bangalore : 030612 : AK-3: A palm seen at Lalbagh, Bangalore on the 15th of April,12.
A spreading out palm, not the tall one.
Black fruits and probably what looked like yellow flowers when picture was taken.
Elaeis guineensis, Jacq. <=> African Oil Palm Tree
Thanks for the id..
I thought African Oil Palm was a tall one, not spreading out.
