Default Want Ice Cream Banana Pups free, San Diego

Howdy banana friends,

I live in San Diego and am in desperate need of Ice Cream banana pups. Not sure if I will survive much longer unless I have my own Blue Javas growing safely in the pots in the apartment courtyard.

My condition would also be greatly improved if I could include Misi Luki and other delicious and exotic banana varieties to my potted apartment orchard.

I lack cash. No money in any shape, really.
But, I do have some amazing healthy dwarf Orinoco pups I could swap for your pups. In the next year I might also have pups from my Hawaiian apple and Brazilian Red (though these two are just hanging on at present).

A wonderful man (whom I have never seen nor spoken to) gave me three pups from his Ice Cream Banana plants (last year). I don't know this fellow's phone number, address, and I don't remember his name. He left these nice pups for me on a wall at a primary school in his neighborhood and we never met. It was like being in a James Bond movie.
Tragically, there wasn't enough corm on the pups for them to take root.
I am still in mourning over this devastation.
I don't remember this mystery fellow's name, and I don't want to suggest that he cut his pups wrong (by leaving no corm for roots)....when he was kind and giving already. So I ask you, good people of the banana, to help a lady out.

If you would like to contribute to my soul's survival by giving me pups from your Blue Java, Misi Luki, Gran Nain, Jamaican Red, or other fantastic and exotic banana varieties, then come on down!

I can offer only a pup from my healthy Orinoco and a firm handshake in return. Or, perhaps one of the tiny organic Papaya sprouts that just came up out of the dirt near my front door (planted from seeds of a non GMO red papaya bought from Vons).

Let me know if you go to the CRFG meetings in Balboa Park. We could meet up there sometime. I still don't know a lot of folks in that fine group and want to expand my circle of banana friends.

Sincere thanks for your help with this quest!!!!
