Re: Pindo Palms, I want a fruit bearing one

Talking about Pindos, look for Butia odorata varieties for best fruit. Other sp. fruit is not so good as Odorata.

Wink Re: New Banana pup - Blue Java I think

No. Orinoco can get up to 20 feet. And yes, I know you probably don't believe me, but it is true (albeit rare). Dwarf orinoco get around 6-8 feet, I think.

Re: Dogs

I had the same problem. My dogs love the small banana pups. They step on the baby bananas, grab the young banana plants and shake and shred them. I had to put up a fence and separate them. :nanadrink:
