While not native to the area it's not that uncommon to see palm trees used for landscaping around here.  In particular there are a clump of them right along Richmond Beach Rd, near the little bowling alley, that I've walked right past dozens of times over the years.  I don't ever recall seeing any fruit on the trees.  I did today.  Looked sorta like tiny grapes, very dark purple, almost black.

Looking at wiki there are a variety of fruits produced by various types of palms.  Just surprising I've never noticed that before.

I grew up in SC and watched the squirrels get "drunk" on the fruit from palmettos (the state tree) after it got a bit fermented later in spring. They would fall out of the trees and roll around on the ground like drunk people might do.
