Default Re: Zone 8: can I order bananas now, or do I need to wait?

I suggest you wait until spring. The plants could encounter freezing temps in shipping: ether by ground or air. ... Local pickup would be OK.

I had 3 plants shipped the 1st week of November. From tracking the plants had to be air freighted to a regional USPS mail hub. When the plants arrived the leaves were dark, wilted, & mushy like frost burn. I suspect high altitude freezing in an unheated cargo hole. ... I know they were not that way when packaged. So after a little more than a month, they are just now starting to recover.
