Re: Looking for Musa milky way.

I have a few. If you don’t find one check with me late spring/summer. I may sell an extra this year. It all depends how many pups I get off them. So no promises.

Re: ID Musa banana from Home Depot

It’s almost impossible to tell at that age. Just the colors, markings, and pedicles I would guess maybe a Musa Gran Nain? Unfortunately you will just have to wait and see.

Re: Cold hardy good tasting dwarf banana's

Musa Raja Puri is what I would try first. Excellent tasting banana. Very tough and fairly cold hardy. They are one of the better Musas for going in and out of dormancy. Which is another problem you...

Re: bananapups.com, tytailors fe'i aiuri tc's

I left several of my big ones out and they were hit by our mid November frost. I think it was 30f or so for a few hours.

Musa Fei I can confirm has absolutely 0 cold hardiness. They make cavendish...
