Hearts of palm are exactly what they say they are: the very core, or hearts, of palm plants. Hearts of palm are also called palm cabbage, palmito or chonta. The plants also grow in Florida, where they are the official state tree, as well as Central and South America. The palms have been bred to grow with multiple stems. Only one stem is harvested from each plant over the course of six to nine months, and by the time the farmers get to the last stem, new shoots are coming up to start the cycle all over again. This is important because it means the plant is sustainable, and not a crop that is clear-cut. The heart is inside the stem, encased in a sheath of leaves that must be removed before eating or processing.
