Do you find this to be an easy one to get fruit off of up here? I need to get a banana to fruit.. I would prefer one of the small bananas like 1000 fingers ...?

Good job on the fruit..

3 of us have had this variety flower in zone 5 and 6 this year so it's a good choice if you can overwinter a tall plant or get lucky with the timing if you have to cut it back each fall like I do.

Hammer, I dig mine up and place them under my porch, its about 40 degrees there and pitch black dark. I pull it out in spring and replant it. It took 2 years to flower. Hope this helps.

One year I bare rooted them (2 IC) & layed them on floor in cool sunroom & covered them. Last winter I kept it potted & in sunroom where it was semi dormant. The other was under grow lights during winter & carted outside in spring where it suffered shock.
They were 2 tiny tc's when I got them in 06.
Sandy, aren't you gonna lift the 3rd petal & peek like I did?

The IC was overwintered the past two seasons actively growing albeit slowly on my front porch. I have too many large plants now and will be dormant bare rooting more and more each winter. It seems to work pretty well and the plants start growing quick enough when they're planted inground in spring.

I think there's 22 fingers on it. But I bet that's all there's going to be. I had 21 on it last year.

There are two more little fingers on it that will probably not make anything, but if you count them, then there's 24. So there Bob!LOL....
