Sabal palmetto, commonly known as cabbage palm or cabbage palmetto, palmetto, sabal palm, and others, is a tree native to South-Eastern United States. The fruit, though very thin, is edible raw or cooked, as well as the stone (seed) which can be ground up as flour. The tetminal bud from which new leaves come from is also edible, but removing it removes the ability for the individual to produce new leaves, dooming the plant. The young leaves, raw or cooked, and the sap are also edible.
