I have just got interested in banana plants. I would like to know if you guys know of any good sites on banana growing or books on it. I am planning to fill up my new greenhouse with banana plants and tropicals. Also, Do all dwarf banana plants produce edible bananas? If you have any banana pups(dwarf or grocery store variety) I would love if we could trade.

Happy Gardening
