Default Fruit Fuel - Banana Fuel UPDATE

As many of you know, our member Richard is enjoying his well deserved retirement and does not continue his fertilizer business.
Him and I have met last month and I have bought all his remaining Fruit Fuel fertilizer (16-8-24).
Not that I am planning on switching over to the fertilizer business, but it would be sad to see this awesome product disappear of the market. I love to use it on all my fruit trees, especially the bananas, with great success.
I am offering it to bananas.org members, charging the same price as Richard used to sell it for ($12 plus flat rate USPS shipping for a #5 bag).
USPS flat rate shipping prices:
One bag will fit in a padded USPS flat rate envelope which is $6.8, two bags (maximum 3 bags with my ingenuity) will fit in a medium size USPS flat rate shipping box for $13.45. PayPal required.

Hey Crazy Banana,

So you're selling 5lbs bags of banana fuel for $12 + $6.80 for shipping($18.80 total)?

I just saw this post but already ordered a 2lb bag from Wellspring Gardens for $19 and change(with shipping). I want to order more for the years to come.

Also, the guy over at Wellspring Gardens also told me that their Banana Fuel is 15-5-30 and you say yours is 16-8-24. Not all Banana Fuel is the same Recipe?

Thanks for your help!

The "Fruit Fuel" formula was developed by our bananas.org expert member Richard and it is 16-8-24 with micronutrients and packaged by the Grow More company. It is phenomenal for bananas and all other fruit trees and does not compare to the product you have mentioned.
The price mentioned above is still current. I have talked to the Grow More Company and if there is enough demand, I am willing to continue Richard's legacy by offering "Fruit Fuel".
Just a little bragging on the side: I had 22 banana plants fruiting for me in 2015, my peach tree gave me more than 500 peaches last month and currently we have an abundance of tomatoes, strawberries and apples in a very small yard.

Crazy Banana, I would like to try it. I sent you a PM.

So is Wellspring Gardens a knock off of Richard's recipe? Has anyone else used the Banana Fuel from Wellsprings Gardens? The numbers look in the same ballpark so they should be similar(i'm a rookie)?

Most plants are not that picky. I don't know about micronutrients in Wellsprings, but assuming they both have similar amounts, they are otherwise so similar, I doubt it would make a discernible difference which one you used.

You need the climate first.
