Rmplmnz,

I planted all of the Rose except one. and I potted it. I also created new mats with the PJBs, strategically placed for good cross pollenation. Diploid cultivars with disease resistance and nematode tolerance are the Bomb!!! Thanks!!

Thank you my friend!!

3640 is growing like a weed..as are the others..my collection has expanded more this year than any other year..

Be interesting to see how well the PJB's do for you..they are very unusual fruit.

My experience over-winter was identical. There are virtually no signs that sigatoka was ever present. I did like the banana farmers do, and removed only the infected leaf parts rather than the entire leaves. The Sigatoka spread to a few of the pups but in very minor and isolated areas. Each time I'd notice the lightly rust-colored streaks starting to emerge I'd just cut out that part of the leaf.

I also found that removing 12-24 inches from the tips of vertically arching leaves prolongs their ability to support their own weight, and makes them more resistent to strong winds.

Technically not planted yet but the bed is 70% ready. Kept killing them direcly in the ground. Did the conversion this is about 240gallons just above ground. I will loosen the soil so it has a bit more space to roam free.

I didn't plant them today, but a couple days ago I planted two Gros Michel's. One was planted in front of my house, and the other was planted next to the rental house that I manage. I thought it would be nice for our guests to have some great tasting bananas during their vacation here.

I planted a ICE CREAM (Blue Java) today.

A very beautiful, cool tolerant
banana plant with texture and
flavor similar to vanilla ice
cream. This banana tree has
beautiful large leaves and
produces medium bunches of
silvery blue bananas that are
very delicious fresh or cooked.
Mature banana tree height to
12'

A few weeks back I got a Ensete maurelli (from ebay) and it almost died (im bad with keeping mail order bananas alive I guess). I repotted it, cut all the leaves off and its already pushed up 2 healthy leaves. Next spring I plan on putting it in the ground. Its going to be the first banana I attempted to put in the ground and if it works out well it may have some friends beside it

Always nice to get a surprise in the mail. What goes around comes around, hence the Orinoco's showing up. It never hurts to mention what you are looking for even if you can't find them right away. Makes me glad you're happy with them.......not to mention not having to overwinter them
