Hiya Hello!

Hello everyone!

I am new to the world of bananas. I live in sunny Southern California, and although I am uncertain of banana tree success out here, I am hopeful. I am planting a Dwarf Cavendish tonight that I received in the mail. I will be using a 12 gallon container (biggest I could find at the moment) and cactus/palm soil. I will attach a picture when I get home tonight.

Welcome to the banana nut club.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.

Greetings, and welcome to the Banana Express.

I have been all over the US but I am not familiar with your location. Where exactly are you?
