What is Heart of Palm?

Pacific Heart of Palm is a vegetable product – it is the single growing point at the top of the peach or pejibaye palm (Bactris gasipaes) from which the fronds/leaves are emerging on a continuous basis. Harvesting the peach palm is sustainable, because it is a palm with multiple stems, as one stem is cut, suckers are growing up to take its place and the palm is not killed. This is unlike harvesting for most species of palm for the heart which is destructive and the palms are killed.
