Default Hello from France



Hi there,

Very happy to have found this forum (by chance), while looking for information on... banana trees (of course!).

My name is John, although I am of French nationality, and I will be 60 years old on August 25th.

Basically, passionate about old vehicles, I take pleasure in loving banana trees because they bring an exotic side and remind me of the countries I have visited.

The second reason is that they grow very quickly, which at my age is an advantage (much more than with the palm trees that I will never see grow...).

I have 4 different varieties:

- Musa basjoo: for 3 years (in open ground). I am very happy because one of them is starting to flower.

- Musa Yunnan Gigante (musa yunnan giant form) (bought 3 weeks ago on the net: it is starting to make its 1st leaf since its arrival) - I will plant it in the ground next year.

- Musa Himalayan Mountain (idem: for 3 weeks)

- Musa Cavendish (found in a supermarket 1 year ago for... 1 €uro: he's tiny... )

Finally, I have an Ensete ventricosum Maurelli (for the 2nd year). It spent the winter in the garage, but this year it will stay in the ground (hoping it won't freeze...)

And finally, a buddy has to give me a Musa Helens hybrid reject (I believe).

There you go, you know everything!!!

Hiya Re: Hello from France

Welcome, Iseki!

I lived in the Dordogne, near the Auvézère, but am back here in the US.
Was very common to see mats of Musa growing in many of the wet low lying areas.

Glad to have you here with us! ~Che

Thanks Valentine

The Dordogne is a beautiful region (with many very pretty castles and real gastronomic traditions [if you like duck :Ha:]), and where it is often very hot in summer.

I live much further north: in Normandy, near Rouen.

For the musa basjoo it remains possible, but for the varieties with edible fruits, it is a real challenge

Hello !

For the first time in my life, I see bananas growing in my garden !!!

Of course, we won't be able to eat them (Musa basjoo), but I'm so happy...
