    Very nice!! How do the bananas taste?
    Are they similar to the store bought?

      They are Grand Naine. That's the same as store bought I think. They taste the same and texture is the same

        I just have some lemons and a few green tomatoes in my greenhouse. Oh, and I pick a fig about every two weeks

          Musa dwarf red. I wish I had room for more, I may have to move some things around to get at least one more kind.

          I was disappointed at first but they seem to be more productive as we we grow more plants and they age. I guess they have massive roots now. The most difficult thing is to keep them from getting too cold.

              In ground and most are large. Potted trees are difficult for me.

                How is that Dekopon Hershell? I bought one of the last ones from a supermarket in Australia last year and it was very good. I've never seen them in Texas supermarkets.

                  Last year they were by far my best citrus. This year they're not as sweet as they should be. So for me I do see the hype around this fruit and agree that it is different.

                    I had one while I was there, it was good but not great. He said last year they were incredible. I hope my tree produces this season.
                    Cutting sales have ended for the season. Plant sales will start March 1 at 8 eastern time. If it is still too cold in your area I can hold your plants till a date of your choosing.
