The leaves, arranged in terminal rosette, are weaved in the shape of a range of 90 CM in diameter. The Petiole, long and hail (up to a meter long), is very thorny. The blade is dissected in 10 to 20 elongated and acute pseudo-folioles, stiff and tough. The leaves are green on the upper side and almost white below. Inflorescence is a SPADICE, surrounded by a short SPATHE (30 CM Long), including many small yellowish, males or males flowers, males or females. It is generally (but not always) a dioecious plant, carrying male flowers and female flowers on separate feet.

The fruits similar to dates are Drupes Oblongues of reddish brown color at maturity, of variable length (from 2 to 5 CM), gathered in a cluster. Their pulp is very fibrous and slightly sweet. Very astringent, they are not edible for the native palm trees in Europe. Washed and boiled, this cooking makes the harshness and acidity leave.
