Here is the fast answer to the question to a new members fishing about this plant..

Everyone whom has purchased this plant is disappointed.
This plant grows best in zones 12 on up.
The people who purchased this plant were ripped off by the seller....fruit what fruit..LOL

Save your money ...this plant needs heat and 12 months of tropical weather to to hit the money.
Other members will chime in who grow plants in a similar zone as yours that fruit in a few years after planting.
Skip the plant for now..

I tried the plant for 2 seasons....great looking foliage and pups but no indication of moving forward.

Just my musa op.
