Default Re: Musa yunnanensis officially described!

I know what you mean nanner! It's a huge problem isn't it? Well I suppose this one you could treat just like any other banana adn cut it if you want. I don't know what the size of the corm is on it yet, but it has gorwn very rapidly. And Brian says the corm does get massive. I plan on leaving them outside for the winter and mulching the same as I do for my basjoo, and if they make it great! I have enough to bring in and carrying pots in and out every year just doesn't do it for me anymore.

Yes I'm always happy with his stuff. Never disappointed. I'll work on getting nee pics up this week for you. I woul dat least, if nothing else, pick up one or two adn grow them in pots over winter if you can. They might be too small to store at this point just as corms.

Enjoy that heat for me! It has been kinda cool here in the 70s for the most part. But big storms loom, just in time to shread my plants.
