Default New guy from central Florida

I live in central Florida zone 9 and joined to get banana help and find varieties for my homestead project. I have several kinds but only one good for my area. Glad to have joined

Central FL is a pretty big area. Editing your profile to show your city is a good way to find members near you who may have pups of the plants you seek.

Why do people have to be near me? I can drive if needed and the mail is international. I trade and buy plants all over the country and i have driven as much as 400 miles to get plants. If someone won't offer or want my money because I'm not in their back yard then I don't need to deal with them anyway.

Welcome to the Jungle!!
Central Florida and South Florida has a great variety of banana plant selections from members.
Putting a post in the banana plants wanted section on the the varieties you might want is a good idea.

Many gems can be found on Treasure coast Craigslist also, many just to the south and east.
.

What is the good performer in your yard?

Only banana I am looking for at the moment is Veinte Cohol. I don't know what my hardy one is. All I know is they grow 13 feet tall and produce small tasty seedless fruits. Been growing on the Crystal River Kings Bay shore for 60 years or more. Growing in coastal muck and limestone forest. Have to pull down the plant to get to the fruit.

You didn't sugar coat that one! I like it! I like pup trading. Most of my trades have been with my good friend Al. Al lives 2000 miles away. If the plants are packed with a little care, they can travel very well. If I had a extra Veinte Cohol I would send it to you. I do not, will not sell plants. I trade or give them away. You being in Florida, I would think you have a much bigger selection of locally grown banana plants to choose from than I do. Local plants in my area are few and far between.
Welcome to the org! I hope you feel at home here.

Pack 'em in dry ice so they don't spoil, LOL!

To our readers of the org. Packing banana plants in dry ice is not only a bad idea, it's a very bad idea. Good one Doug. Wet ice would also be a bad idea.

If I ship my plants with dry ice, do I pretreat with roundup first?

To all the new readers out there, I was being factitious, as my character frequently manifests itself.

DO NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, pack your bananas in ice; wet or dry!

It can't hurt, but you might also add a little Chlordane or DDT to help out with potential pests as well.

Glad you have a sense of humor!

Yes!

They are typically coated in chocolate and frozen in wet ice. You might find them on a mobile dispenser that plays "Do Your Ears Hang Low."

I believe the common name is Good Humor. Latin name of Musa humorous v. Snarkieosis. Hope this helps...

And with a pinch of magic sparkle you can get them to grow real big and strong.
