Hi and welcome NSW Bananas,

I have tried growing the two varieties at the top of your list here in Bendigo. They grow alright, but don't fruit, at least not yet.
I am soon heading over to Thailand to some real banana growing country, so I hope to find lots of different varieties to taste.
Hope you have lots of success in growing your plants and that you enjoy your stay at this forum.
