Hailing from a town called Naini Tal in Khumoan, northern India at altitudes of 2400m, this palm was discovered in 1994 and was thought to be Trachycarpus takil. It was wrongly named as such. All so called takils in cultivation are now understood to be Naini Tals.
In appearance and genetically, it is similar to Trachycarpus fortunei but is taller, more vigorous and larger in all its parts. Also, its fibres are thinner and they are shed readily, leaving a naturally bare trunk.
Everybody who grows this palm knows it is hardier and superior to regular Trachycarpus fortunei.
