Williams was not cold tolerant!!
Hi Banana Friends!
Despite I believed that Musa Williams was one of the cold-
hardy bananas, it could not overwinter in the ground even
with the cold protection of wrapping by mats of vegetable
materials. The pseudostem and the rhizome were rotten.
For your information, the lowest tempratures of this winter
were as follows:
Nov. 58F, Dec. 29F, Jan. 30F, Feb. 27F, Mar.sofar30F
On the hand,Rajapuri overwintered perfectly in the same
ground and with the same protection.
