Walking Stick Palms, Linnospadix spp.

  • Walking Stick Palms are small plants, with fishtail-like leaves.

  • They produce small, colourful red or orange fruits that resemble tic-tacs. The fruits pictured belong to the Northern Walking Stick Palm Linnopadix minor.

  • They have large seeds, but the little flesh they do have is edible.

  • The 'Walking Stick Palms' are so-named as the southern species from the sub tropical rainforests in northern NSW and southern Queensland was once used for walking sticks.
