Default Re: Who's growing Musa Itinerans?!

I got seeds from Rarepalmseeds and sent them to Helton to Brazil. Helton also has Musa balbisiana, sikkimensis, sikkimensis "Manipur", cheesmanii, Helen`s Hybrid, acuminata ssp. microcarpa, beccarii, laterita, formesana, thomsonii, siamensis, campestris and yunnanensis from seeds from me from Rarepalmseeds, and Sunshine Seeds. I got pups and seedlings from most of them for my yard here in Lucianópolis.

Many of the plants are only 3 to 4 years old, already huge and fruiting!!! Thanks to the Brazilian tropical climate.

Also Rarepalmseeds does ship seeds to Brazil, @Yuri Barros, this is no problem for you to grow bananas from seeds from Rarepalmseeds in Brazil. But you also can get seeds and pups from the plants in the nursery of Helton, they are already fruiting.

Best wishes
