  1. sago palm

    A sago palm is a type of plant belonging to the cycad family, native to southern Japan. Despite its common name, it is not a true palm. Its scientific name is Cycas revoluta. Sago palms are known for their feather-like fronds, rough trunk, and their resistance to tough growing conditions. They can be kept both outdoors and indoors, and can live for hundreds of years. Some sago palms also produce cones and groups of seeds, but this usually happens when the plant is at least 15 to 20 years old. The starch derived from the pith of the sago palm, also known as sago, is a staple food for many peoples in the tropics.
