Default Hello from South Florida

Hello everyone,

First of thanks for a very informative site, this helps a lot. I'm very new to gardening , got started with my first banana tree about a year ago, Mona Lisa. Now I'm looking to purchase another short variety of sweet bananas and possibly a dwarf plantain. Any recommendations and descriptions will be highly appreciated. So far I'm considering a dwarf red , dwarf Orinoco and possibly a dwarf Puerto Rican plantain. If anyone has any expiriences with these please share. Look forward to learning from you all

Thanks again

I can say that dwarf red are pretty but tough to fruit... And 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.
