You're right with me, Scot, I sent Chong about a half hour ago and I think we'll need to wait until he gets back from Mass for an answer!

After my last post I noticed I had an e-mail from Chong late last night (buried with my e-mails from companies trying to sell me something) and learned that he hadn't heard back from Dr. Parmar. I think I'll send Dr. Parmar another e-mail since it started with an e-mail from him to me.

This is the first time I really read this thread. I'm definitely interested in this cold hardy, edible banana. Thanks!

Hey, All,
Great News!!! Dr. Parmar responded to my last night's (actually early morning here) email within just a little over an hour from my posting! He informed me that he found another Hill Banana with fruit, that was different, but appears to be a mutant of Pahari Kela, and was also quite cold hardy. Then he asked if I wanted a couple of them with the shipment. Can you believe that? I'm still thinking about it -LOL!

This was followed by discussions on payment and shipping arrangements. He was very encouraging. He said that the delay in communications was because he'd just gotten a new computer and was about to email me, but when he opened it the first time, there was my email!

Guess we're on again! I'll be sending him the payment on Monday with my permit paperwork.

Hello Austin,
We've reserved 10 Pahari Kela, most of which are spoken for. This includes several that were ordered for Scot to propagate via TC. I had asked Dr. Parmar if we could increase the order to 12, but with his last response today, he offered 2 corms of a different variety of banana that could be a sport of the PK. So, naturally, we would be interested and told him so. That then brought us back to 10 PK. However, if Scot successfully propagates these plants, they will be available to our members for a minimal cost.

I'll PM you on what other options we have.

If only there were some people like you and Scot in the Europe. Gosh, it's incredible, the only people that actually seem to have all those famous and quality cultivars (Ice Cream, Double, Iholena, Dwarf Red...) are Germans. But only a few of them are willing to trade or give. Lucky, that there are some people from Italy and Switzerland, who are willing to share their resources, but besides that, it's difficult...
If only someone could TC bananas in Europe for our needs... And I know, that there are many members, who would be interested in certain cultivars.

Perhaps this is a niche that you could fill?

I am far from that level of gardening although I would like to reach it some day, maybe in a year, maybe in two, maybe later. I'll see, how the things develop and whether there will be any place left in my garden and house then.

On it. The center seems to be growing on both plants, so it might be a question of week or two, until the effect is noticable in pictures. I will update the information and pictures as frequently as possible.
