Default Re: Help! Musa Basjoo not doing well

TyTaylor... Looks like you are not in a frost free zone. How do you manage to tend to so many varieties, many of which are not frost tolerant, such as Gros Michel? I live in east central Florida, and worry about it and the Cavendish next winter... and we are way safer here... Anyone else growing and fruiting nanners in the northern areas, please chime in as well.
I used to grow em in central Illinois, but had no hopes of ever seeing fruit. I dug them up and put them in buckets in the basement during our long winters.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
