I grow bananas and plantains primarily. Occasionally, I have other things that I grow like Calabaza or green beans. That being said, my wife does a lot of work in the produce industry and sometimes we trade bananas for other things like cabbage and peppers and most recently Pecans. Finally, I do sell some avocados and starfruit grown by my friends at Erickson Farm. They helped me immensely when I started by hooking me up with some CSAs and Buying Clubs. They are 7th Day Adventists and don't work on Saturday, so I sell their stuff on Saturday.
Some people go bananas, I went plantains.
