(Roystonea olerácea, formerly Oreodoxa oleráced), a palm (up to 40 m high) with pinnate leaves (up to 8 m long). It grows wild in the Antilles and in Honduras and is cultivated in the tropics.

Some palm species of such generaas Euterpe and Borassus, whose terminal buds are also used for food, are sometimes called cabbage palms.
