!! A few years ago our neighbor moved here from Tampa Bay and planted banana trees. When I saw that, I figured she did not realize how far north she had moved or maybe she was “a city girl” BUT to my amazement I tasted some of her bananas that fall or the next and wow were they full flavored and yummy. We have grown bananas and enjoyed them and now want to sell you some. They WILL grow, that is for sure, they can be neglected and grow fine. If you want fruit give them some compost or fertilizer and they love water, they give as they receive. Pups (small banana trees) are $10 and we will send them in a banana box, all you do is put them in the ground.
