Re: Is it possible for a dwarf cavendish to survive 9a zone?

I am in 9a and have had DC for many years but they never do much in the ground. They struggled even on the best years. Don't waste your time, I just dug them up and making room for other stuff.

Re: When to harvest?

I still make the mistake sometimes of cutting too short, even after growing bananas for a few years, I still forget and cut too short and they die. I like about 24".

Re: When to harvest?
