OH NO, DARN I bought a banana plant that doesnt produce fruit

14 years ago

I am so disappointed. I just read on a recent post that one of the bananas plants that I just bought won't produce fruit.

At least not for a novice.

Please, BANANA FRIENDS, look at the rest of these and tell me about them.

DWARF CAVENDISH BANANA , BASJOO BANANA, ICE CREAM BANANA, DWARF RED BANANA and the last one is called WILLIAMS

Will these, other then Basjoo, produce fruit for me in my lifetime?

I thought I had read up on them suffeciently to make intellegent choices. Well, I thought wrong.

My space is minimal, so I cannot have an unlimited number of varieties. I do want varieties that will produce fruit.

I chose these 5 for my training trees LOL.

I figure once I gain some knowledge and experince then I can chose the next five, giving me 10, which is my goal.

On the other side of my property I will grow my figs..I am working on them at the same time. (5 varieties.)

The Bananas are so beautiful. They were about 8" when they arrived, now they are pushing 12" It has been about about 2 or maybe 3 weeks. Two of them have one little shoot off to one side that are about 1" tall. ahh babies...lol

T.H.A.N.K...Y.O.U.
