Default Re: Name the cold hardy bananas!

This year, all of my bananas are surviving 32 frosty or freezing nights with: 1 night below 26, 4 nights below 27, 6 nights below 28, 8 nights below 29, 12 nights below 30, 14 nights below 31, 21 nights below 32 deg F.

And one of them is a RED edible fruiting cultivar and has a few pups. Will post later in spring. Will sell the cold hardy red edible fruiting banana to the highest bidder. I was disappointed that no one believed that there is a cold hardy RED banana. But mileage could vary in your actual yard. You have to test them yourselves.
