Re: Banana newbie
Welcome. It's good to see a Texas banana grower. I had family in Round Rock until last year.
Exactly like Crazy Banana says the ice cream blue java tissue culture plants sold all over are actually tall Namwa. Even though it's not the actual ice cream, Tall namwa is still great for your area and cold hardy. They get big and the fruit taste great.
This is my 2nd year growing the real ice cream and they seem to do great here. It was my first plant to start growing after winter this year. I will not have extra pups till later this year.
I can confirm Crazy Banana has the real plant. Just look at the picture below his name lol.
150+ Varieties!!. See profile for list. Help me add more!
