What's the best Butia for a low-heat climate (Sunset zone 17)? I've been eating Butia fruits from several palms this month, and I certainly enjoy them. they seem to vary quite a bit, both on level of fiber and also on size. I'm a fruit guy, not a palm guy, so fruit quality/size/production are all much more important to me than appearance of the plant. Should I go with eriospatha? capitata (I have a small one in the ground from Patrick Schafer)? odorata?
Advise me, o palm gurus.

My name is João, I am from Portugal, and I grow a lot of fruit plants, specially passiflora, but also eugenia, psidium, solanum, myrciaria, garcinia, campomanesia, musa, etc. I have wrote two introductory books about passiflora, they are really my passion. Here it is zone 10, nonetheless I have to use some shelters/greenhouses. Hope to learn a lot here!
