I believe John Hetzler(?)Hirsch(sp)& Francko
all did experiments on leaf hardiness in a lab
to come up with the carb/water ratios and hardiness
ratings,I wish they would have had genuine Takil to
test back then,probably Nainital was the one referred to
as Takil in their tests...you do have to question where
the seeds from the current Takil seeds/palms that have become
available came from,not all see collectors would say..hey lets
go all the way up to the highest Takil we can find and get those seeds!
