RE: BANANAS this summer

Beautiful. What type of banana is it? In Zone 8 you won't have to dig them up will you? That is just an impressive stalk.

RE: BANANAS this summer

Musa Orinoco im pretty sure because i have another which flowered and had bananas. ( I will post pics. soon ) I know many people around here who leave them over winter and they will die back to the bulb then shoot up almost a foot a week in late feb. early march. I on the other hand dont like to see them die... so I dig them up leave the upper leaves and pot them and have them as house plants for the 4 approx winter months. Thank you they and I love the summer. -Justin
