You don't ship fruit by any chance do you? Because I'm having a darn hard time trying to find someone who ships banana fruit that isn't Cavendish, normal Plantains, or Ninos.

ETA: - Just received a Mysore today and planted it. Very excited for this one, now just waiting for enough $$ to expand to a Pisang Klotek

If you are really in Washington, it might be difficult. I've got some Goldfingers that should be ready at the beginning of May, it might be worth trying. The main issue is the transit time, and the temperatures.

I managed to find another spot in the yard that can take another banana. Having tasted mysore again recently, I was blown away by how good they are, so dug up a pup and planted a new one. This one will also help block the neighbor house.

I'd have to eat them both every day for a while to decide. When I had them, I went for them first since they were something different. Definitely more complex flavors. I look forward to having them more frequently. DBs are still my regular daily banana that I usually like to have in the house.

Found 2 more spots in "my" yard. Ok, they're on the lot next to me, but nothing else is there but rocks and weeds.

Went to Clueston here in south florida. The South Bay area. about 50 or so miles away from where I live now. That area has some of the richest soil in the world there is so much grown there. I past by the one nursery that at least 1000 banana plants. I stopped in and negotiated a price on a couple of banana pups. I was in banana heaven.
