Nice to hear that he is a member of this forum........................

YES.........I'm trying to find this strain of Fehi Banana to import........................some call it Karat.............

In the Youtube comments..............he said Prehistoric Banana..............that´s what I like..................rare and ancient strains..........

In my list followed by Fehi.................are a kind of Plantain from Uganda called Matoke................and Musa ingens from PNG...................

But Karat.......Musa troglodytarum.......... for sure is my favorite..................

I think the shipping from Hawaii issue is a bigger problem. I've never tried contacting someone via youtube, but I guess you could try that, or via his account on here.
