Since the "fruit" of a palm is its nut, I suspect that your "palm fruit oil" is simply what's being called palm *kernel* (nut) oil these days. The red palm oil is noted to be stronger, but the regular palm kernel oil is accorded similar attributes to coconut oil. After all, coconut *IS* a palm.
it's an option if you're cooking for someone (or a group of people) with so many allergies that you can't find any other oil or fat they can have. It was also just a big fad for a while, one of those foods that everybody suddenly decides is special for reasons that aren't entirely clear. But it's expensive, it's extremely environmentally UNfriendly, and it has a fairly strong flavor that not everyone will like. If you can use olive oil or something less exotic, that's probably the best bet.

The Allergy-Free cookbook I checked out from our local library mentions Organic Palm Fruit Oil in most of the recipes. Never heard of it.
