Default Wanted: The elusive California Gold

Just trying to get on someone's waiting list for a California Gold pup. I have nothing anyone around here would want for trade, but I do have cold hard cash (seems like they go in the $40 range lately). So if anyone wants to trade some green for some green, let me know.

Cheers,

Ed.

Ed:
I am just letting you know that yes California gold is elusive but I paid a premium for it last November of 2006 $200 for a blooming California Gold plus one 3 foot long pup and I gave the pup to my friend. I got the fruit to mature and ate the fruit even though the arctic blast of 2007 fried all the leaves. I planted the pstem on a wine barrel and the main corm on the ground. The corm bore a pup and it is now about 4 feet tall but there is no pup in sight. After I harvested the fruit the mother bore a pup and it is now a foot and a half tall.
I am just letting you know why it seems like the CG is elusive because of its elusiveness to bore pups unlike my other bananas where they bore 2 or 3 pups even though they are still a pup themselves.

maybe pop some GA3 in there somehow, I seem to remember it can promote pups.
Or just over feed it till it throws them out maybe

It's a dessert banana, and only so far they have only been gotten through pups. I wonder however if it would be possible to do a Tissue Culture on that plant to make it more readily available. Some argue that it's only a sport of a D.O. However, many say it does better and fruits better in the Central Valley, CA than the Dwarf Orinoco and withstands the weather better. I hope to find one for sale at one point. I'd like to learn how to do Tissue Culture one of these days myself. But that's another story for another day.

*Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on any of this btw, I'm still pretty green*
