Hearts of palm are as the name implies, the heart of a palm tree. Hearts of palm can be harvested from a number of different varieties of palm trees. Mikuni carries heart of palm harvested from a clumping palm, Bactris gasipae. This variety of palm tree continuously sprouts hearts and therefore the tree is not killed in the harvesting process.

Palm hearts can be eaten in both raw and cooked preparations. They have a culinary range that extends from use in canning, salads, and desserts.
