Ashrasi

Synonyms: Ascherasi, Asharasi
Origin: Iraq
Meaning: Uncertain:  “Hard” – (Dowson 1939) and “Tall Growing” (Popenoe 1913)
History: A few offshoots of this variety were introduced from northern Iraq in 1902 by Fairchild.  There were also some offshoots in the Popenoe importation of 1913.  Only a few scattered palms are to be found in commercial gardens. Ashrasi is an excellent semi-dry which has a good record of surviving occasional rains and high humidity with little damage.
