I am hoping this is the year. It is getting hard to store them ,
because of the size. Have you ever Had one bloom in NJ?
Nope not yet. I just got back in to growing bananas after about 10 years when i picked up a couple of basjoos last May. The bulk of my collection was purchased after joining here last Sept. I do have one fairly large(5') Ice cream that had been cut down from 7' for shipping from Sandy. The ones I have the most hope for are the dwarf varieties I've collected since I will overwinter them again this year indoors and keep them growing. So far I think my best chances will be with D. Namwah, D. Orinoco as well as Calif cold Hardy and Cal. Gold.. I'm going to go look at your pics now but definitely want to hear more about what you're grown / done over the past 3 years.
