male/female palm tree

Enclosed is a pic of 2 stems(?) I pulled from my palm trees. Are these both female at different times of blooming(?) or is the green one female & the yellow one male?

This is my first time to post anything, so you may send reply direct to me at if that is ok.

Thank you.

Hard to tell for sure as the pics are not in focus, but probably yes, a female above, and a male below.

PS best to edit out your e-mail address above, otherwise you risk it being picked up by spam robots!

Emm, well, it's a bit late now that you've pulled them off. ;-) If you leave them be on the tree and have a good bit of luck, you'll have seeds ready to go in a few months. After that, yes, you'll be able to grow your own little palms. What kind of palm are these from?
