Musa Basjoo flowering

by Nate74 » 1 day ago in PNW Palms and Exotics

So I have a banana that is flowering ( Musa Basjoo)

What are chances that there will be viable seeds from this? I know that these are ridiculously easy to divide and easy to source but the idea of starting some from seeds from one of my plants is very appealing.

Thanks,
Nate

Carambola for San Diego

by shaneatwell » 2 weeks ago in Rare Fruits, Edibles and Permaculture with a focus on tropicals

I'm curious about recommendations for taste and suitability of carambola (starfruit) for san diego. From posts here and elsewhere Kari, Kajang and Sri Kembagan seem to be favorites. I can't tell if anyone has kept named varieties alive here.

Also, any recommended nurseries? Thinking Exotica and Bonita Creek.

Thanks

Shane
