Default Need new start

Have had banana plants for 40 years, all from 2 plants. Always had great luck with very few problems. Last winter I had them stored in a friends heated out building. Heat went off and froze every last one. Trying to get a new start but have no clue what variety I had, but they were huge. Would like to buy some trees or corm. is offline   Reply With Quote Send A Private Message To

True maybe Orinoco I know of someone on this forum from Cincinnati area Heat Zone 6/5 that has fruited Orinoco recently this year.... Did you eat the fruit??? <40 years?

It is Not the best time of the year to make requests, maybe around March/April would be better?
