Default Any locals?

I've been wondering for a while if there are any local banana growers(Poinciana, FL). I would be willing to trade or buy any plants because I have very limited access to those cool places with lots of different varieties. If not, then whatever, I'll just keep growing my 4 varieties until I die

I really want some Blue Javas.

I am an hour and a half to 2 hours 89 miles from you in Inverness. I have blue Java and Pisang Abu Perak but I am not letting anything go until february or march since things are going dormant now. I have around 50 varieties total. I have short cycles which give the most hope of getting fruit in my area.

I'm in Lakeland.
no ice creams, but lots of good varieties.
Come visit my corner spot; read some interesting post, buy rare edible plants & animals

Check out the Leu Gardens Annual Plant Sale (March 10 & 11), it just about 30 miles away. Going Bananas will be there and they usually bring around 10-20 varieties.
