Awright - I'm attempting to find more about bananas. So far I have Dan Koeppel's book, Chapman's book and the Stokes' You Can Grow Bananas.

Recommendations please.

I love reading about the history etc but would also like to just learn more about the plants in general.

And I just emailed for the DVD that is a sticky here. Any other DVDs out about bananas?

Koeppels book is excellent, in my opinion. It was very informative. Chapman's: not so much; at least not for me. I found it to be a bit confusing and certain things did not make sense. I saw where someone else on here mentioned something similar. I have another book at home that I haven't read just yet. I'll check the title and pass it along to you.
