Default Growing Bananas in Phoenix Area

Tried a lot of banana varieties but am staying with cold tolerant ones.

http://www.bananas.org/gallery/data/.../IceCream1.jpg

About 9' tall and gets sunburn.

This is a test. Still can post images in the preview post. Maybe .img vs .jpg.
Any help?

posted by media hound How to post images in your threads
To post a photo, you must get the url (web-accessible path, something like http://www.bananas.org/images/editor/insertimage.gif) to the image on your computer's clipboard. To do that, right click the photo you wish to post, select 'properties' - then in the box that appears, you will see the url (location) of the image. Double click that link to select all, or drag your mouse across it to highlight it, then copy that link to your clipboard with a Ctrl+C or another right click and select 'copy'. Come back here and type out your post, then click the little icon that looks like a mountain range with a sunset. It looks like this Thats the tool to help post images. It will prompt you for the address of the image, it's already copied to your clipboard. So Ctrl+V to paste it in there (or right click and select 'paste') and presto, your image is ready to post. Preview your entire post to make sure it formatted everything properly before you click submit.

Another way is to paste the URL to the image and surround it with [ img ] (means open image) and [ /img ] (means close image), like this:

HTML Code:
The sunset image tool basically streamlines this same process with the [ img ] [ / img ] tags.


Hope this helps!

I put the photos in the photo gallery but can't do anything with them getting into the post. Open properties but can't do anything.

Hey Sammie,

I'm in Tucson and my ice cream is bearing all kinds of fruit. This is the first year for my plant. The leaves are just baking in the sun but she's hanging in there. Now that monsoon season has arrived I'm hoping it rejuvenated her. I don't know how long it takes for the fruit to ripen but I've got 5 pods & a bunch of babies popping up. The plant is about 15 ft tall. I'm so excited for them to ripen, can't wait to taste'em!

My Dwarf Namwah doesn't burn. It seems to be wind, sun and heat resistant. New leaf is as green as can be. See above picture.

They don't? So is this the way it's going to stay? Green?? When do they grow into mature fruit?

Pinwheel Re: Growing Bananas in Phoenix Area

Going to be moving to Temecula Ca, zone 9b, not as hot as you all in Arizona, but still hot.

I plan to put in shade cloth for August and September and grow the shorter varieties.

I am currently in zone 10a plenty of room, good cold air drainage but little water.
