"The main acai palm, euterpe oleracea is way too tropical and barely even survives in Southern Florida. Growing it in even the warmest and mildest parts of California is very, very difficult. However, I was surprised that there was a type of acai palm that grew in California. Euterpe Edulis fruits in Southern California and is about as hardy as a king palm. If you can grow a king palm in Northern California, there's a pretty good chance euterpe edulis will grow for you. If you're into fruit, this is definitely a worthwhile palm to seek out."
