Contact Pitangadiego and Sunfish here, both from San Diego. You'll get large plants at good prices. It's worth the drive.

Also, there's a "wanted section" here on bananas.org where you can post what you're looking for and other members can respond. If you can figure out what type of plants you want, that may be the best way to get the best actual plants, since members often send enormous corms that can establish new mats in short order.

Check your local Craigslist. You should be able to get large pups for $10 or less

OP,

Pitangadiego, who operates Encanto Farms/WeBeBananas listed above, provides a list of his banana selection here (along with his contact email).
