Default Re: Musa Becarii

Musa beccarii is an ultra-tropical species from lowland Borneo with probly as little cold tolerance as a banana can get. Many people have trouble growing it as it requires fairly constant ideal conditions to thrive, although it will grow in areas such as central Florida, but struggles more than other bananas (as I have seen). It also reported sometimes to be the first go down in the fall and the last to come up in the spring.

Definetly not a hardy banana by any means.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
