where do hearts of palm come from? do they really have to kill a whole tree to harvest them?

Asked by sfgal (280points) June 12th, 2007

I heard that hearts of palm (those yummy white things that you put in salads) are actually bad for the environment because they have to chop down baby trees to harvest them. Sounds like a myth, but could this be true?
