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[1], as well as the stone (seed) which can be ground up as flour.[2] 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[3]. The young leaves, raw or cooked, and the sap are also edible.[1]
