Default Re: Harvey's Hardy Banana

I also had frost one night last year with 28F, and most of my bananas were frozen, but most of them survived! Even the huge disease resistent banana from Embrapa, Mysore and Musa basjoo were still happy and came back very quickly, also Musa "Prata Zulú" came back quickly, fairly hardy. I do have enough place for your bananas here in Brazil, but there is a problem with import restrictions of Brazil, and it is unfortunately not good to ship banana plants or rhizomes to Brazil from the USA and Europe, only seeds will be okay. But I have luck in Brazil, Figo is another name for Orinoco, Prata is another name for Tall Brazilian, Roxa and Vinho another name for Dwarf or Tall Red and probably is Nanição an alias name for Dwarf Cavendish. Prata Zulú is close related with Orinoco, relatively hardy and did not loose its pseudotrunks by the frost here.

Best wishes
