From the pictures I've seen it is definitely sensory overload there with the weather, beautiful seas and very little soil! He had to resort to composting to get enough soil to grow his bananas. That's pretty dedicated. His place in the state's is really beautiful too.

It's mostly just composting out here in the Marshall islands, like Darkman say's there's no soil just sand and the rain just sifts straight thru. I don't know how the island stays as green as it does but is fairly green during the rainy season. The Ice Cream is known by the locals as a "Cooking Banana". But we also have what the locals call "300" which is Mysore. The Mysore are few and not so plentiful plus they are hard to grow out here. I have a mat with 3 and should get a bloom any day now. The mysore is the top preferred banana by the locals (me too).

sputnic7.....Don at "Going Bananas" told me the story about Agristarts/ice cream/blue java/namwah but I can keep it all straight (comes with age) but if you get an Ice Cream from him it should be the real deal or if you call and ask him I'm sure he will tell you since he is on the same page about the situation.

NPH the thread starter got his at GB and it seems it might not be IC. I'll still make inquires when I'm down there.

It just seems like it is something akin to unicorns!

I may be able to get one from another knowledgeable source that is trusted.
