I regularly buy bulk seed from the U of HI & just fired off a couple emails to see if there might not be a good local TC banana source in or near Kauai, that way you'll wind up with good LOCAL plants.

HEY~ Lookie what I found:

Just heard back from one of the folks:

the college produced some banana plants and may still have some left on Oahu. Call the seed lab at 808-956-7890. The Hawaii Agricultural Research Center on Oahu can do it for you if you provide the source plant. Their website is at: Hawaii Agriculture Research Center , go to the micropropagation services.
