Hello all. I moved back to Florida last year (Tallahassee) and immediately planted Dwarf Cavandish, Orinoco, and ice cream bananas. I am interested in FHIA varieties as well. I am luck to live in the warmest area of Tallahassee so we have fewer freezes that the rest. Does anyone know a source for FHIA varieties?
Thank you, Woods

Welcome to the org! I hope you enjoy it here, learn a lot and make some great friends. As far as FHIA varieties, I know quite a few members on here have them. If you want something in particular you can always start a classified ad to see if people here have what you are looking for. Hope that helps!
