Wow, I am shocked that it hit 28 in Palm Bay. It was 42 here next to the lake, it's amazing the warming effect it has.

Re: Before & after freeze pics Jan 2018. What fared the best?

People here had coconut palms until 2010, and big mango trees, too. Just over a half hour south of here there are lots of big mangoes and coconuts, but here they are all pretty small. The only bigger...

Re: Before & after freeze pics Jan 2018. What fared the best?

Wow! You're pretty far south for such a freeze, no? Isn't your area able to grow Coconut palms?

This is a brutal winter for sure in the SE. Well, everywhere east of the West. Here in Denver, we've...

Re: Did I kill my banana corm?

It depends on how much of the corm you cut off. It is possible you cut too deep and removed the growing point (forget the technical term). Even if that is true, it is possible that the remaining...

Re: rajapuri outdoors in Northern California (grow report)

I agree with the taste reports. I like the taste! It’s like you take a Brazilian and add a little extra sweetness and tropical flavor. I can easily taste why people say they taste like pineapples! If...

Re: rajapuri outdoors in Northern California (grow report)

The biggest upside of Rajapuri is that it is the shortest really good tasting banana, if you have taste buds like mine and like that "Hawaiian apple" (Pome) flavor. Grown well, under good...

Re: How to tell if tree has fruited in the past?

Exactly like TJ said. They make no more leaves after they produce fruit. So you would see the bunch or evidence of it.

I would recommend just clearing out all the smaller pups, leaving 2-3 of the...

Re: Should bananas be planted in rows or a circle?

A few fellow forum members on the Florida east coast do the circle .....just for compactness.
Youtube offers a few good vids on banana circles.

I have seen this and it seems to work very well on a...

Here is the batch I dug out, just in case. All ready to move to their new home across town in about 2 weeks. Good to know I don't need to bother digging them out next year (my first winter with...

Re: Should bananas be planted in rows or a circle?

It likely would make little difference as far as plant growth is concerned so long as you space them far enough apart. 10-12 feet apart at least. I agree with Akula about it being difficult to get in...

Re: Resilient little lasiocarpas.

It is because it is not an Ensete! They are called:
Musella Lasiocarpa.
Same family: Musaceae.

They do pup and they pup pups as pups and their pups pup pups as pups! :woohoonaner: Super Puppers!...

Re: Why are the leaves looking yellow?

The latex will congeal inside the leaves under cool weather conditions. I've never had plants get quite that yellow from cold though. In the late spring, I sometimes get a passing manganese...

Re: Advice on choosing ornamental nanas for landscape

Ornata can get fairly tall!!

Velutina is a shorter type. Only pink fuzzy flowers though.

Lesiocarpa (Japanese yellow) is a very pretty long lasting big yellow flower. They stay short. They pup...

Re: My variegated dwarf Nanwah is budding

Based on how filled out they are, you could probably harvest them now and they would ripen fine. But personally, I usually wait until a couple start to turn yellow.
