There is a plant trade coming up in Galveston County in 2 weeks and one at Mercer in about 3 weeks. Check the Texas forum, exchanges for details. We have several banana people in our group. I'll see what has pups in the yard.

I go to Houston about every two months. I have lady fingers, unnamed banana trimmed in burgundy color, and another unnamed banana. Hope you got to attend the Mercer plantmeet, we all had a great time. Tally, Nadine, and a few others had some named banana plants, not on your list. Dee
