Germinating Palm Tree Seeds?

While vacationing in Puerto Rico, I pick up a few of these
palm tree "seeds" (if you call them seeds). I'm not sure
what type of palm tree, only that the "seeds" are in clusters
below the palm leaves at the top, and the seeds are shaped like
those small chocolate eggs you can buy during Easter, only
slightly larger (maybe an inch and a half in diameter).
They are initinally green, then they turn red before falling off.
Then the outside turns to the rough coconut type texture. I am in
Illinois and am wondering if I could grow these, and if so, what
I need to do to acclimate them to the indoor environment. Also, I'd
like to eventually transplant them to Arizona. Thanks.
