Date palms are the more expensive and more prestigious than fan palms. There are two breeds available, Deglettes, and Medjools. To the untrained eye these appear to be the same tree, but after closer examination you will notice slight variations, including frond stature and length.
We carry two types of fan palms. Mexican fan palm hybrids, which are tall and skinny, and California fan palms, which have a much fatter trunk and grow much slower. Because of the rapid growth rate, Mexican fan palms are much cheaper than california fan palms.
