Fellow Carolina member checking in! Well if we had a house I would have a yard full like you guys thats for sure. Gave some to my parents,some never made it being dry stored,traded some locally. My goal is to get every cold hardy that will grow in NC. I understand if its not a normal winter I might loose some. But its a goal .

Joy Re: North Carolina Banana Addicts support group

Hello everyone,

my name is Jamie. I'm from Fair Grove Mo and I'm a banana growing addict. I've been an addict for a while now and it's hard to stop. My wife is the first one home everyday , so when plants show up in the mail she is the first to see them. It always brings on the same question. Where are these going to go! Lol answer..... I'll find a place! Lol She is very supportive but I don't think she quite understands it.

That's right, cause it has effected your DNA, You definitely have it and can't do anything to get rid of it.. lol :^) They are holding your metabolic structure hostage & you have to keep them Happy by getting more banana's. :^)

wow! All this time I thought I was all alone in my affliction,but since I found this site I realize there are others out there just like me! Lol I'll never forget when my first banana showed up on my doorstep. Then shortly after there were hundreds of more varieties!! I had to have them all!!!(my poor wife) packages started showing up at the door and she was thinking (what in the world is he doing) but I soon realized it just was not going to be when the little bananas grew into huge plants. But now I am learning you can store them dormant ,so we will see.
