Thanks to all. Although ecapelao's answer seems appropriate (giving palmito as the portuguese term) it is not clear to me if there is a difference between 'palmito'and 'palm heart. My text did contain both in italian but I could not detect the difference, so gave the same translation in English.

Explanation:
Una ricerca dei siti compresi Eurodicautum ha risultato per tradurre i tali termini "palm heart," "palm bud" or "palm cabbage" in "cuore di palma" in italiano, però non ci ho trovato purtroppo qualsiasi traduzione per la parola "palmito," sebbene dovrà esistere probabilmente questa.

Buona fortuna! Gary
