Anyway that post did look a bit suspicious.

Don't limit yourselves to just growing bananas for fruit there is a whole world of species bananas out there.
OK - you guys have perked my interest in growing musa from seeds. Thus far I've limited myself to edibles that might survive in zone 9.
I agree - the guy with the list is probably bogus..
So, where do members get your seeds? Anyone want to trade?
Is this a good source TopTropicals.com - rare plants for home and garden What do you recommend for zone 9 and beauty?
Thanks
