Default Re: Which varities might be best able to deal with Allelopathic plants ?

You can add Brazilian Pepper and California pepper to you list of plants.

I haven't grown any bananas in the vicinity of such plants (at least ones that are know to be such), but haven't found anything that doesn't get along with bananas, as long as water requirements are compatible. If you are going to experiment, I would choose Misi Luki, Goldfinger, Fhia-18, Praying Hands or Saba just because they are aggressive growers and might be better able to compete.

I have had no issues with Citrus, Prunus, Ficus, Chorisa, Annona, Morus, Vitus, Pyrus, Malus.

My 2 cents.
