The Pisang Ceylon now has 7 hands on it, while the Namwa has been growing at a slower pace with the bud emerging in the last 2 days.

OK cool as I'm just NW of San Diego proper. I haven't tried to seriously grow bananas for a few years but my problem before was I trying to grow pure cavendish types and they just halted come winter. I'm looking forward to see how Namwah, Brazilians, and possibly Mysore types do for me.
