We have a real fun variety here called Coastal. It can run about a foot a day with good conditions. I have a concrete slab that is 11' the short way across and I have a runner that has almost reached the other side in a little over a week.It is a nightmare around flower beds.

I've got 47 acres and rent another 99 acres. I've got to have a defined "banana area" and leave room for crops that help fund hobbies!

I use quite a bit of glyphosate (generic form of Roundup) and know lots of folks on the forum are growing bananas organically. I often wonder if they would still get by doing that if they had Bermuda Grass. Dave, please don't send any seeds of your super vigorous form!!!

I never knew that was what that is called. It has to be a beautiful thing in the devil's garden--because I have to fight like h@#l to keep it from taking over my wife's flower gardens.

With all these "Veinte Cohol " pups I guess the waiting list is history..... at least for .org members or at least that's how it should be. Mine has 5 now, not including the two I already potted. If it flowers on such a short cycle as it's touted to do this is one all of us in the north should be growing. It's supposed to flower sometime in August and produce edible fruit 2 months later from a 2' pup planted in May. If thats true I should have a flower sometime soon.... and a few pups for whoever wants them.
