Default Newbie intro

Hello all! My name is Crystal. Iíve never done one of these introduction things cuz I felt a bit awkward doing them but I was told to make a post so here I am 😊. We live in Lehigh Acres in SW Florida. Iím somewhat new to banana plants. My last house had lots of well established bananas that lined our backyard but other than the occasional clean up on the dried up leaves, we really didnít bother with them and they didnít produce a whole lot. The ones they did produce were small, green and fat and were pretty starchy tasting. Iím pretty sure they were the Orinoco variety. My fiancť has been wanting the ďclassicĒ Gro Michel bananas so we bought some back in March which brings me to my recent post in the identification section. 😉
