Scot,

Good luck with you move to China. I hope you get all that you are seeking there. I'm happy for you, but sort of sad as well because I was looking forward to getting together with you and Paul again the next time I was in Vegas. Oh well, I'll just reschedule for China, I guess! Best of luck with your trip. Check in with us when you can.

SH3640 and Ebun Musak should get snapped up - both are wonderful bananas.

I wanted to, but nah. Europe, remember.
SH3640 is the one that Greenie had so much fruit on, right? Some hundreds and incredibly heavy bunch of nanas. Ach. And I could dream on and on...
Ebun Musak is quite high to my climate though. I will have to wait for someone to liquidize in Europe... Not going to happen, I know...

Ni hao Mr Zhang, I will be going to China soon. Unfortunately, China does not permit me to bring bananas or seeds into China, but I know where to get some plants in Xishuangbanna. I will be trying to establish a connection there to get some bananas for us. But it will not be for a few months until I can get established and travel there. Where do you live in China? I will be going to Zhejiang first, and then to Hunan. You can send an email to me so that we can contact each other after I arrive. Zai jian

It looks like I will be in the sub-tropical South eastern area, but that could change. Most likely, I will be in Hunan province for the first year. I plan to look into getting some connections set-up in Xishuangbanna and Northern Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. It will obviously take me some time to get there, but something I want to do next year.

Scot, what happened to the rest of your impressive collection? As I recall, this list is only a fraction!

Good luck in China. Sign me up for a corm of Musa itinerans var. xishuangbannaensis, if and when you find it!

Nice. Hunan is my homeplace, and I feel very glad that you can come Hunan, the Hunan province is beautiful. I have lived in Changde city of Hunan until 1999 for going to university in Wuhan city. After that, I study in Beijing and Guangzhou for master's degree, and now, I service a plant company in Nanning city of Guangxi province that is not far from Xishuangbanna. Nanning and Xishuangbanna belong to subtropical areas.

I really hope you can sell some high value seeds of banana to me, thank you.

Your chinese is good, hope we can keep contact each other.
My email: jzzhang@scbg.ac.cn

Thanks Frank, yes the other plants had been sold previously. They were the first ones to go. They didn't even last until the posting.

If I get my hands on some 'Xishuangbannaensis' believe me, there will be some cause for celebration. As soon as I can, I plan to visit Dr Markgraf at Tian Zi to tour his operations and visit the tea house. Just sitting there sipping the worlds finest tea amid the jungle life will be quite exhilarating to be sure. No, I won't shave my head and sit in the lotus position all day seeking enlightenment. I do hope to learn more about and from the Dai people who inhabit the region. I wish that I could work with Dr Markgraf, but the job only pays room and board, no salary. (And there is no air conditioning. lots of bugs and other wild animals like Tigers, Elephants, Bears, huge snakes and of course Monkeys - probably the most frightening to me after tigers.)
Once I get more established, I will make some posts with photos.

ok Scot, if you're going to be a wimp about it and not shave your head while sitting lotus position in a funny kimono looking thing, could you at least consider burning a tiger and dragon in to your forearms while carrying a burning hibachi with those embossed in the sides before running crying in to the snow. Developing the semi Asian sounding David Carradine voice that none of his family had would seem appropriate also.
Good luck buddy!

As discussed in our previous correspondance, I also covet Musa itinerans var. xishuangbannensis. Please, please, please keep us in mind when you finally enter the Xishuangbanna province of spectacular plant material. Any banana, palm or ginger there simply fascinates me, and I'm sure our compadres. I currently have an import permit for Musa itinerans from China, so if I can be of assistance, please let me know.

I wish you the best of luck with your noble endeavour. I'm also very curious what your impression will be of Dr. Margraf. Based on my interactions online, I found him suspicious of my intent, easily frustrated and too distracted by other ventures to concern himself with helping an enthusiast. I also have major reservations about the competence of his staff. The original assistant was serviceable getting those first corms to me. Once she left, her replacement was useless.

Anyway, have fun Stay connected.

Scot is eating Chinese food in Las Vegas and I just finished eating Chinese food here in NorCal and I've got all the bids Scot has sent me updated. If you've made a bid via e-mail to Scot which you don't see above (unless you've been outbid, naturally), please send me a PM.

20 hours to go!

Today will be better than my work schedule yesterday....irrigating (and shoveling several yards of fill dirt into holes that appear in my alfalfa each irrigation in 100+ temps). Didn't have time for lunch yesterday and didn't finish until midnight, but I'll be in and out more today and will get any bids posted fairly quickly.

Once we roll around 5pm and you see me posting the final bids (I'll add "AUCTION ENDED" in the first post), please e-mail your shipping address to Scot so he can get you an accurate shipping cost and send you his PayPal address.

Thanks again for helping us send Scot to China!

Harvey
