    It is from a palm tree, but am finding it hard to locate the species to make sure they are edible

    Joseph,

    Those are from a Mexican fan palm. I usually link back to the answers, but I must have forgotten that week. Here’s the answer post: http://blog.growingwithscience.com/2013/10/seed-of-the-week-fan-palm/

    According to this website the fruit of certain fan palms are edible: http://www.quisqualis.com/tv01ediblepalms.html
