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?

You have a long way to go. Looks like the bloom has been cut way too early and short. I will be surprised if they make it.
