Florida is the biggest producer of saw palmetto. Small patches can be found from the southeast coastline of South Carolina and southeastern Georgia to southern Mississippi. But it does not grow naturally in Texas, Mexico, or the Caribbean. It grows in every Florida county, but much of its production centers in South Florida.
The Associated Press reported on recent saw palmetto developments in Florida in an article extracted here.
informations from the internet.
In 1994 an important entrant joined this growing field. It’s called the Saw Palmetto Berries Co-op of Florida, Inc. Headed by CEO Gregory P. Zaino, this company can harvest more than 3 millions pounds of berries annually. Based in Naples, Florida, Mr. Zaino can be reached at (239) 775-1243. The Naples Daily News had a two-page cover story in its August 25, 1996, issue about Mr. Zaino and his operation. You can read it here at http://www.mendosa.com/vachon.htm. The article was written by Staff Business Writer Michelle Vachon, who happens to be an old friend and associate of mine from when we worked together as editors of a magazine years ago.
