Brod, Sorry for the late response. These bananas grow very well in the lowland tropics. The photos of the Toucan eating the bananas were taken at a friends house who lives a couple hundred feet above sea level. We also have them here at Akira Reserve at sea level and they grow very well and fruit regularly.

You have toucans, right there, in your friend's yard. I would have to go to the zoo to see one lol

If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any Banana pudding! How can you have any Banana pudding if you don't eat yer meat?!
