Thank you, Worm_farmer. I think you are a person who believes in the wonders of Mother Nature. I didn't get this idea of "Grafting the banana plant" out of thin air. A Brazilian guy told me his father used to do it in his farm, so I decided to try it. If you see a smoke, there should be a fire somewhere, so I decided to graft banana plants myself. I didn't find any reason for this Brazilian guy to lie to me since he was my friend. After I posted my grafting in the forum I felt pretty stupid, but there was no way to turn back. I know myself and I'm a purdy hardheaded mule. There should be some truth in this "grafting thing", so I kept experimenting. I still don't have concrete proof of the possibilty of grafting banana plants, but I will continue my experiments as long as it takes. I hate to be a failure. Your approval is a very energetic support and encouragement to my efforts. I appreciate it. Best Wishes, Mauro

Basjoo which is very cold resistant made me curious about the behavior of the banana plants, and find a way to crossbreed them. What I am doing is something unbelievable, and doesn't deserve any credit, but still there is something in my mind that tells me that if I keep trying I will get somewhere. I already have 9 plants of a new generation of Basjoo growing marvelously and that is enough to satisfy my ambitions for the moment. I will keep you informed about my experiments. For myself it is really rewarding to have friends in the forum. Best Wishes, Mauro
Hello Mauro,

Thank you for your quick comments.

To be very frank with you, I find much hesitations to approve your so called "Grafting" banana
to be a way to crossbreed banana species. If such could be possible, there would not have been
agonies to find cold resistant bananas, and the world is filled up with cold hardy bananas anywhere.
The reality is, however, such has not been happend. But to tell the truth, I have been paying much
attention and respect to your experiments.

Now, for your information, I introduce you what I succeeded overwintering and harvest here
in Shizuoka City without any anticold protections.

1. So called "Miyazaki Banana" which could be a variety of vegetable banana
  that have been planted half wildly for a long time in Miyazaki and Kagoshima areas.
2. A kind of local banana that has been secredly grown here inShizuoka area
for considerable long time. That is said to be transplanted by some sailer
from the Philippines and is considered to be a variety of Psang Awak.

The bananas overwintered by some protections on the pstems under the eaves are California Gold,
Hajaray, Dwf Orinoco, Ice Cream etc.

If you like to get more informations, I am pleased to do so.

Thank you for your information Mr. Asacomm. I have been living in Japan for 47 years and this is the first time I hear about the Miyazaki Banana. I know Miyazaki and Kagoshima Prefecture and I'm aware that it snows there. Sometimes, in the winter it gets colder than Mie, Prefecture, where I live. I really would like to get my hands in a Miyazaki Banana pup. Do you know if it is possible? Do you know anyone who is growing this precious banana? In my area no one grows bananas. Maybe because it gets too big and people don't have much space like I do. I am growing an Atlantic forest here in Mie, by my own with seeds of plants of the Atlantic Coast of South America, especially with Brazilian Pines, Araucaria Angustifolia, which produces edible seeds and the Chilean palms. I don't have any contact with banana enthusiasts here in Japan. The types of bananas you mentioned which are cold hardy, We don't have in Okinawa. Several years ago my brother brought me pups of about 5 or 6 types of famous bananas grown in Brazil but they did not survive the winter, that's why I started my experiments. Here is a video I made in the early spring few years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhIryzP2-oY
I hope you like it. I will post updates of my New Basjoo in the near future. Once again thank you for your information. Bye!

Hi Mauro,
Thank you for your response. First of all, I didn't know that you have been in japan
almost for 47 years. I also have seen your several videos on the net.

We have a considerable wide net society in japan on banana through blogs and internet.
So why don't you try it?

Regarding the "Miyazaki Banana", if you search it on the net, you will be able
to find what it is and probably who grows it.
Of course I grow it , so if there will be a good sucker some time next year, I will let you know
when the time comes.

Today it is a horrible day of the typhoon No.18, but I dare say "Good Day and Good Luck".

asacomm

I have heard storys (not so much with banans) People will mist their seeds with a Chemical. Most of the seeds will not bloom. But the ones that do will make a Second gen of a much better plant. Maybe if the corms graft, it will at lease cause some type of mutation. If you enjoy what you are doing I always suggest you keep doing it.

Thank you for your comments and also taking your time to watch my videos Cincinnana. The sauce I made for the wild boar roasted meat was Rangpur Lemon juice, with a little bit of salt and and red hot pepper. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rangpur_(fruit) I learned this sauce recipe to eat pork in Hanoi, Vietnam. We use the Rangpur lemon in Brazil as stock for grafting all kinds of citrus fruits because it is very strong and grows fast. I think you will be able to grow it in your area since it is amazingly cold resistant. If you plant this lemon from seeds it will take about 4~5 years to bear fruits while other lemons will take about 9 years. If you want seeds I can mail them to you. The Vietnamese people also use the leaves as seasoning to cook many dishes. Since gardening is my passion I will keep on growing all kinds of plants in my area, just like you. Once again, thank you and Best Wishes, Mauro
P.S. I think you are a fantastic Green Thumb!
