Default New German banana book "Bananen in MItteleuropa" published!

Hi banana friends,

now is my book "Bananen in Mitteleuropa" ready and is published and to buy in book shops and online shops like amazon.de, libri.de and others. in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. See e. g. Libri.de - Joachim Jäck: Bananen in Mitteleuropa and Amazon.de: Bananen in Mitteleuropa: Anleitung zum erfolgreichen Bananenanbau: Joachim Jäck: Bücher

The ISBN-Nr. is 978-3-8370-5455-2 It has 152 pages and 229 pics, 77 species and cultivars are described, 11 more than "Bananas You Can Grow". I wrote the book "Bananen in Mitteleuropa", because many German banana enhusiasts don't understand, read and speak English, they cannot read the book "Bananas You Can Grow"!

Who here does understand and read German, should buy my book, it's a must for every German speaking banana and exotic plant lover! Much thanks for your support and help for my work at my book, and much thanks for many pics and infos from you for my book. I will not forget you!

With the best
Joachim

That's awesome, congrats on getting it published. I bet there are quite a few english speaking people would like to order it even though it's in German. I'd like to get one myself, but the shipping isn't relyable here.

Dear Joachim,
many thanks for this info. Next time when I am in Berlin/Stuttgart I will buy the book.
I know so many ripening instalations in Germany, the banana terminal in the port of Hamburg. But I never thought in cultivation bananas in Germany in the garden. Nice idea. We should start promoting this, because people go to the Stuttgarter Wilhelma to see bananas.
Viele Grüße aus Buenos Aires!

Hello Joachim,
I also have the book 'Bananas you can grow' but find it not so informative about the 'hardy' species actually. It's generally an overview of all bananas and for that it is a nice book. Is your book more specialised for German regions (I'm from the Netherlands) and are generally the more cold tolerant species the main topic?
I think my German is good enough, at least, I hope so
Kind regards,
Remko.

@griphuz - Yes, you can use my book for the Netherlands. The Netherlands has even milder climate, so that you can try more species and cultivars. Yes, the book "Bananas You Can Grow" is not as informative as my book about hardy bananas. You can read even about methods of winter protection for bananas in my book. You can order my book at Amazon.de: Günstige Preise bei Elektronik & Foto, DVD, Musik, Bücher, Games, Spielwaren & mehr

Best wishes
Joachim

This is possible. I plan two new banana books, one in 3 languages (German, Portuguese and English, "Bananen in Brasilien", "Bananas no Brasil" and "Bananas in Brazil") and one banana lexikon. It's sure, that I will write further books in the future.

Best wishes
Joachim

Hi,

yes, one English version is planned, also the Portuguese version for Brazil. I will begin in October the three versions (German, English, Portuguese) project.

The lectors for the German version is Dombo and Chris Stührk, the for the English version probably anyone member from this forum and the for the Brazilian my guest daughter Leda and Helton from Frutas Raras.

But the 1st edition of my banana book is also better than Bananas You Can Grow, I believe that.

I believe, that my both foreign languages English and Portuguese will increase, so that I will understand English and Portuguese more better. This might be one chance for me to get the Brazilian passport.

Best wishes
Basjoofriend

Congratulations Joachim! Your life project is manifesting more and more.
Hopefully it brings you to where you want to be.
I eagerly await the chance to order a copy, is there a preorder for the English version available?

Thread stuck, by the way!

Hi,

Mediahound, one English version is planned, yes. I will begin it soon. My friend Chris even said to me, begin it as soon as possible. Some of you might be check as lectors my English version. But, sorry, I cannot French. But I also will write one Portuguese version for Brazil. The book will exist in one German and one English version, later one Portuguese version will be added.

To be more exact, I do speak German, English, more and more Portugese (I'm learning more and more, my guest daughter Leda here in Hamburg and her parents and friends in Lucianópolis are helping my wife and me) and a bit Spanish. I was orginally planning to emigrate to Tenerife, but the prices of the properties on Tenerife were rising too quickly and too strongly, so that I couldn't manage to buy one house with a big yard or banana plantation on Tenerife, currently it cost's 1,000,000 euros, more or fewer. Then one friend, one biologist, learn't to know one Peruvian girl and married her. My wife and I learnt Spanish, orginally for Tenerife, then for Peru. The properties in Peru are more cheaper, but earthquakes and risk of volcanic eruptions. And the Peruvian wife was not honest to her German-Chinese husband and us, she cheaten him with other men and didn't provide us in emigration to Peru anymore. So that we canceled our travel to Peru, and one uncle of her wanted to sell one of his houses in Peru and he didn't book tickets earlier. But my friend learnt to know Leda and brought her to us. She told us that her dad and our today's housekeeper wanted to sell his banana plantation And we changed our emigration plans and I spoke with some of my importantest friends, what's better, Peru or Brazil. My friends told me, Brazil is better. Enough precepications and water, without risk of earthquakes and volanic eruptions. So I decided for Brazil. And the guest family in Pinneberg treated Leda very badly and like one slave. So that her mom in Brazil requested me by email to help her to find one better guest family. I came to one idea to host her and to become her new guest father. I spoke with my wife, and my wife requested me very strongly to host Leda. So that Leda moved to us in August of the past year. And since we do know her, she teachs us in Portuguese. And I learnt very much, so that I can communicate with her parents and brother in Lucianópolis. My friend took one lawyer and divorced from his Peruvian wife. Leda's mom looked for properties in the area of Lucianópolis in the state of Sao Paulo. She found one house for 5,000 euros and one mansion for only 40,000 euros (later rised to 49,000 euros, at least 55,000 euros). But the house for 5,000 euros is too bad and the yard too small. So that we decided for the mansion. But the seller also wanted to sell his mansion and offered it uns and told us, that his orange mansion is better than the yellow. And the yard is so big, 3,619.02 square metres. So that we bought our mansion in the past winter. We were 2 times in Brazil, and on 23rd August we will travel to Brazil for 4 weeks again. Our mansion is our vacation house, Leda's family keeps our mansion, our garden and my banana collection. More about our banana garden in Brazil: Jardim de Banana Lucianópolis , currently only in German, but one English and one Portuguese version are planned. There are no bananas yet, but I will do change it in the next month. I will get pups from Maca, Prata, Ouro and Nanica from the old neighbour of the family of Leda. Also Helton from Frutas Raras will provide me in my banana yard project. I also sent him 11 species of Musa and Ensete to Brazil, he will germinate them and give me the seedlings back for my yard in Lucianópolis later.

Best wishes
Joachim

Congratulations on getting published and all the best wishes on your new property. It sounds like you have been on quite a rollercoaster ride the last few months!

Please keep us all posted on your new plantation, and include some pictures, too.
