I am Zone 9b and I think it does better a little further south than I. However, some people seem to have better luck. Its worth a try if you are looking for a banana that was a Cavendish feel.

I love them! One of my favorite tasting bananas. They are average cold hardiness. About like Brazillian I would say. One of their parents is dwarf Brazillian. So they inherent several Brazilian traits.

Namwa is often sold as Goldfinger. Obtaining the real one is difficult, although I believe both HMelendez and TyTaylor have it.
