How about Superthrive?
Anyone else here admit to using this?

Some peeps go hydroponics and grow their own stuff do so
to avoid eating chemicals and hormones
with their fruits & vegetables.

Can we reasonably & organically grow decent bananas in SoCAL
by growing it naturally with just manure(steer/chicken...) & mulch
with minimal or without chemicals and hormones?

There was an article on LA Times dated June4 business section
where a peach farmer grew his (Matsumoto)peaches with less water
in response to the drought in California.
The peaches were smaller and not as plump as they would normally be
but the flavor was more robust and concentrated.
In fact the farmer admitted that MAYBE he was overfeeding the peaches
with water all this time and with less water,
the peaches were more flavorfull!

I sure hope unlike almonds bananas will not take
more than a gallon of water for 1 fruit to form.
Does it?
I sure hope Im not in the wrong hobby.
