Hiya How tall are your pseudostems?

I thought it would be fun to post the heights of everyone's pseudostems on this thread.

Fall will shut down banana growth here in central Arkansas in the next few weeks. No frost or freeze yet so the bananas continue to slowly grow with highs in the mid-60s to low-70s.

2 Raja Puri - 4.25 feet/51 inches (twins the same height)
Dwarf Orinoco from Wellspring - About 6 feet/73 inches (don't know if this is really D.O. but is supposed to be)
Dwarf Orinoco from Going Bananas - 4.3 feet/52 inches
California Gold directly from Jeff - 2.2 feet/26 inches
Dwarf Ladyfinger from Logee's - 1.75 feet/21 inches
Zebrinas - 5 feet/60 inches
Ensete Maurelli - 3 feet/36 inches
Arkansas River Valley

Average January Low: 31F, Average August High: 92F
Extreme Winter Lows: 5-15F, Extreme Summer Highs: 100-112F, Annual Precipitation: 52 inches
