Doomed!

As I posted recently... bananas are tropical plants. That means they have no idea what to do in the cold (much like myself).


This poor thing decided to fruit... at a totally inappropriate time of year. Chances are, these bananas will not reach maturity. I took this shot before we got our last few frosts... the fruits are already looking a bit burned. If it doesn't pull through to the spring, I'll have to cut down the stem and wait a year or more for one of the pups to try again... and just pray it doesn't do so in winter. These trees are simply too tall to protect. Perhaps I should get some dwarf varieties?

Anyone out there growing a really hardy variety that actually makes fruit? I'll be happy to trade something for a pup or two.
