Saw palmetto is an evergreen member of the Arecaceae (palm) family, native to North America which can also be found growing in the Caribbean. This small palm tree can reach a height of up to 6 metres. The leaves have a bare stalk terminating in a rounded ‘fan’ of about 20 leaflets, the leaf stalk and edges of the leaves have sharp ‘saw’ like spiny teeth which gives rise to the ‘saw’ part of the name, they are light-green in colour. The individual flowers are approximately 5mm in diameter, and form dense, compound panicles of up to 50-60cm in length. The fruit is a large reddish-black drupe (berry) approximately 2.5cm in diameter.
Brief History: Native American Indians used saw palmetto berries as a tonic medicine and due to the rich source of natural tannins in the leaves and stems they used it to tan hides of deer to use for making clothes, tepees and various other items. They also used the leaves and branches to make household items such as baskets and clothing items such as hats.
