Wrapping up this thread with the conclusion to the 2018 growing season result. Harvested a total of four bunches. Three namwa and one unknown. All plants flowered in September. One bunch was harvested before Christmas. My largest bunch from my monster namwa weighed 37 lbs.

Weather reports indicated a hard freeze of 26F from Tuesday to Wednesday morning for my area so I decided to pull the trigger and harvest all my fruit. Todays reports are showing only about 32F. Oh, well there's always next year!

Nice job man. This is your first harvest, right? You'll be getting bunches and bunches from now on. I dont think we actually had a hard freeze here this winter, for the first time since I moved here 8 years ago. Very mild winter and a very wet summer I imagine makes happy bananas. Thanks for posting your experience, it's really helped set my expectations as far as what I can possibly achieve in our zone. I discovered my first flower emerging recently, so as long as we have an early spring, I'll get to experience to joy of backyard bananas too!

Yeah, first harvest. I planted the originals in March of 2017. The bunches were from their children.

I ate the first bananas from these bunches today. Really good. An extra six weeks really helped in both size and flavor compared to the bunch I harvested pre-Christmas.

Congratulations on your flower! The 2019 banana harvest for Gulf Coast Zone 8/9 is looking good so far. Knock on wood! Haha.
