Of course I'm not offended! No apologies needed. I just wanted to make a point that this isn't a documented method for hybridizing bananas, and that the chances of it working, according to the current scientific literature, is slim to none. I didn't want everybody who read this thread to think that this was a slam dunk, can't miss, easy method to creat a hybrid banana. I'd love to be proven wrong.
