Default New from central Florida

Hi all,

I've been lurking a while here. I started growing about 2 years ago.
I'm in Pasco Country in Florida. We sold off our horses a while ago and we're slowly turning some of our pastures into food forests.
I have dwarf namwahs (several bought as "ice cream"... I'm still looking for a blue java...)
Dwarf Orinocos
Dwarf Cavendish (all went down after the freeze this year)
Pisang Ceylon
Dwarf red
the "new" Seminole
Hua Moa
Dwarf Iholena
a mystery banana sold to me as an Indio (think it might be a dwarf green) which is fruiting now.
Gros Michel
Grand nain
Double mahoi (as a cavendish it also went down this winter)

and 2 ornamentals Zebrina and Siam Ruby

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.
