And this is other type of fruit on the other types of palm trees … Looks like the fruit are green, which changes to black when they are “ripe” …
I suspect these are the ones that are made into palm oil for some reason … Perhaps because they look a little bit like olives … not very scientific I’m afraid … but then I’m a photographer not a botanist 🙂

Intrigued by your photo you set me a small challenge. I think they are Seminoles ~ small black fruit used for herbal medicine. Here’s a post about them if you scroll down http://waynesword.palomar.edu/ecoph10.htm. all the best Dianax
Thanks Diana, so it’s a “seminole palm ?” … and did you see the previous post, there’s a different type of fruit on that one I didn’t know name for either !
I tnink they were pictured on the link I sent you Don 😉
Was a busy one yesterday, so just checked it now … according to wikipedia there are 2600 known species of palm trees !
Dates grow on palm trees which I didn’t know, fairly sure they aren’t dates though …
palmseedsthailand dot com sells maybe 10 species of palm, at least two with similar looking fruit, so hard to tell.
