It was sold to me as Takil at Pungo Palms, but who knows what it is? Allen Hirsch wouldn't commit to an ID, but did mention tests he conducted on "the palms sold as Takil from Pungo Palms."
There is a good chance that my palm is Nainital or a Naintal/Fortunei mix. It had a most pronounced "kink" at the base when it was little -- a Nainital indicator.
