The species grown and supplied by Pacific Heart of Palm are the Bactris gaisepes (also known as the Peach Palm).
Bactris gaisepes is naturally a very spiny and noxious palm, but spineless cultivars have been developed at Pacific Heart of Palm that make it a lot easier to deal with. They are quite fast growing species.
Normally only one to two culms are taken from each palm at a time leaving the rest of the palm untouched and able to recover rapidly. This makes most commercially sold heart of palm a readily sustainable resource.
