Getting rid of bananas

A couple of years ago I planted several types of bananas figuring I'd wait till they produced fruit and keep the ones with the best flavor and growth attributes.

Well I have made my decision and a few bunches need to go. But how? Do I merely hack off the tree parts and suckers as they emerge and the roots will die eventually? or do I have to dig out the korm?

You'll need to dig it out or it will just keep sprouting

Yeah you need to dig it out and send it to me ;~). Seriously maybe I could pay your postage if you wouldn't mind taking it/them to the post office. What type of banana(s) are they??

I think many of us could use them so don't toss em out if you don't mind. I would gladly pay alittle extra for your trouble. Don't have much to trade with except elephant ears and tons of red canna.

Sorry for the long delay answering these.

"Yeah you need to dig it out and send it to me ;~). Seriously maybe I could pay your postage if you wouldn't mind taking it/them to the post office. What type of banana(s) are they?? "

I have several named cultivars and those that are dwarf or small I'm keeping. The very large ones are "Brazilian RED" so I'm told (though nothing about them is red except for the male tip of the flower stalk) by some folks who imported them from Brazil a gazillion years ago. The Korm is rather large, in the neighborhood of 3+ feet square and I have no idea how deep so mailing would not be possible, though local pickup in Southeast Flori-duh is do-able.

I only grow edible things, I have 30+ species of fruit trees, and vines. Too bad you folks are so far away, I would set you up in a mini plantation. I bring pups to work all the time for co-workers, they love them.
