My name is Bass, I live in Pennsylvania, but grow many fruit trees. I run a small nursery http://www.treesofjoy.com and I specialize in figs and other uncommon fruit trees. I grow about 250 varieties of figs, and some tropical fruit trees in my greenhouse. I also grow many Jujubes, persimmons, pawpaw, Pomegranates and many other fruit trees.
Every couple years I go down to the islands of Trinidad and Tobago visiting relatives and sampling tropical fruits.

I enjoy eating the sweet juicy ones like Li, Honey jar, and Sugarcane. I have several promising varieties that I'm hoping to try this summer. I currently have 15 varieties.
Here's some of the varieties I grow.

I have a 1 year old grafted Sugar Cane & Honey Jar. The Honey Jar had around 6-7 fruits this year, whereas the Sugar Cane seemed to form fruits but quickly dropped them.

Bass - how big is your greenhouse? Is it heated? Have you successfully fruited the bananas? I'm probably not too far from you, its always been a pipe dream of mine to have some bananas growing here.

I have Raja Puri Banana currently fruiting in the greenhouse. It's about 20' long greenhouse, that kept in the 50's and 60's.
I also grow hardy bananas in ground. They do bloom, but later the freeze gets them. They sprout back every spring.
