Default Hawaiian keikis wanted on Big Island

I'd like to try growing some of the native varieties, such as Ele Ele, Iholena, Huamoa and so on. Anyone on BI have keikis they can spare?

Thanks, but at this point I'm not selling plants anymore, except in certain cases unfortunately. As bunchy top has made it to my farm and neighborhood, I'm only selling certain kinds to those who know bunchy top is already where they're located. No easy way to know if something could be infected but not yet showing symptoms. Hua Moa very rarely can be found at Home Depot, along with "Red Iholena."

Marvin in Mt. View may have Huamoa available. He certainly has Popo'ulu varieties as well. Seems to be quite a few banana collections around, just a matter of finding them.

Thank you. I checked in with Marvin, and he does indeed have about a half dozen native varieties.

Very good. Between Rob & Marvin there should be plenty of options to choose from.

I am currently getting ready to plant various nanners in an abandoned orchard hoping to further perpetuate the species.
