Default Re: growing bananas in northern/central north carolina?

If you really want to grow this stuff here in NC, you will have to either have a two story solarium in your house, or a tall greenhouse. Pineapples will survive in an unheated greenhouse here, but fruiting bananas and the like will have to be moved back and forth, or have a heat source for your greenhouse.

While we have slid several hundred miles to the south and west since the 1940's, it is still not a subtropical climate here. Yet.
