Default Help!

I recently got found some seeds on a Canary Island Date (Phoenix Canariensis) palm tree or so I thought it was. After hearing about another similar palm tree the Cliff Date Palm (Phoenix rupicola) I started to think do i really have those canary seeds? They were red seeds, but I thought Canary Palm seeds were red also besides yellow and orange? Im just so confused on this whole matter? Any one know more?

You def have a seed from the Phoenix family, and it is most likely to be a canary island date but there is one other that it can be but i forget the name of it.

Phoenix (plant)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Phoenix is a genus of 13 species of palms, native from the Canary Islands east across northern and central Africa, the extreme southeast of Europe (Crete), and southern Asia from Turkey east to southern China and Malaysia. The diverse habitats they occupy include swamps, deserts, and mangrove sea coasts. Most Phoenix species originate in semiarid regions but usually occur near high groundwater levels, rivers or springs. The genus is unique among members of the subfamily Coryphoideae, being the only one with pinnate, rather than palmate leaves.[2] The name derives from a New Latin form of φοῖνιξ, the Greek word for 'date palm', probably referring to the Phoenicians who brought the palm with them in their travels or maybe from φοινός, 'red-coloured', referring to the colour of their dates dates.

Description

This genus is mostly medium to robust in size but also includes a few dwarf species; trunks are solitary in four species, suckering and clumped in nine, of which one has a prostrate ground trunk. Many of the trunked species do not form above-ground stems for several years. The pinnate leaves, 1-6 m long, all share the common feature of metamorphosed lower-leaf segments into long, vicious spines (acanthophylls). The leaves have short or absent petioles and possess the rare feature among pinnate palms of induplicate (V-shaped) leaflets. The plants are dioecious, with male and female flowers on separate plants; pollination is by both wind and insect. The flowers are inconspicuous yellowish-brown and about 1 cm wide, but grouped on conspicuous large multi-branched panicles 30-90 cm long. The inflorescence emerges from a usually boat-shaped, leathery bract, forming large, pendent clusters. Phoenix fruit develops from one carpel as a drupe, 1-7 cm long, yellow to red-brown or dark purple when mature, with one elongate, deeply-grooved seed.
