I just bought a California Gold from Greenearth for $12.95 + $6.95 Shipping. I have had good luck with their bananas in the past.

Buy a Dwarf Orinoco and get the same banana without the overpriced hype.

Default Re: Looking for a CG

I don't know if it is a real CG or not. The bananas that I have ordered from them in the past have all shown up in good condition and reasonably priced. As a novice banana grower, I can't tell a lot of them apart when they are very small. below is what the description read off the website:

California Gold - Banana Plant banana tree "California Gold" - a real cold hardy fruit producer. Exceptionally frost hardy compared to other bananas, produces good fruit, year after year, without any frost protection. Only a few banana plants might equal the cold hardiness of California Gold, such as the inedible Japanese fiber banana Musa basjoo. The California Gold banana shakes off the cold. It may lose its' leaves after a hard freeze, but then continues to grow when the weather warms in the spring. The leaves lost during the winter don't seem to slow this plant down. California Gold have produced tasty bananas outdoors during the summer after enduring winter low temp in the low 20?s! These plants should be able grow fine in USDA zone 7 and above as an outdoor plant. The mature plant is small only 5-6 ft tall. Some of plants have produced fruit in as early as 11 months from a pup. Delicious fruits rival any store bought fruit in quality and flavor. approx. 12" plant ships.

CG1 24.95 12.95

I'll see what it looks like when it arrives.

Well. My personal belief is that the CG is a more cold hardy variant or mutation of the DO. So I'm not gonna give up my search. Oh and Tony that was a very good question. I would love to know if anyone has successfully grown a cg in zone 7. And plundccre while I think Greenearth is fairly reputable I saw the add a few years ago for their dwarf Orinoco saying it was commonly called Texas star and California gold. I believe changing the name was a sales gimmick.

I'd be happy to sell you a California Gold obtained from the source for $$$ or a Dwarf Orinoco for $10. Either one will require a greenhouse in your location from October through March.
