Default Re: Help! Musa Basjoo not doing well

Have you tried Braziilians? We had a couple frosts here last winter, but it didn't get below freezing that I know of. I didn't even have leaf damage and it had a bunch on with no damage, uncovered. Something to think about, I guess. Mine flowered in 9 months here, so they flower quick, but they took 5 months to ripen, downside.

I wondered basically for ideas for my cold haters here in case of colder weather. We all seemed to have a mild winter last year, but it can get down to mid to upper 20's here occasionally.

Good to know Namwah don't mind a chill as I am pretty sure I have two of them. As I remember, they are fast fruiters too.
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.
