Growing Bananas in the Pot
Has any one of you grown bananas in the pot and have them fruit for you?
I have dug many of my bananas out of the ground because the cold spells here often kill them to the ground and they have to start all over again every growing season. Since bananas take a couple to a few years to get established, I have never seen many of them fruit. Finally, I gave up and decided to keep them in the pot and protect them to see what happens. So far, I have seen a couple of them fruit. Right now, my Goldfinger is bearing fruit in a 10-gallon pot. Although I must say the fruit is scanty .. only six of them in a bunch. But, it's better than not seeing any of them fruit.
I'd like to show the picture of it fruiting, but I'm having a lot of difficulties with the browse picture here, so maybe next time I'll try again.
