bbqsandwich: Tarkus: Meh, the good tasting bananas died out in 1970. Bananas haven't tasted right since then.

Maybe your taste buds just died off?

No, there was a different species of banana used before blight wiped them out. Forget the name, though.

Really, really want a Gros Michel. They still grow them Asia. Unfortunately, don't think I'm going there any time soon.

Dinjiin: assjuice: Even Minnesota?

If you can keep your greenhouse above 20F in the winter, you can grow banana plants in Minnesota.  To get them to fruit, you'll need a location with full sun and you'll need to keep the minimum temperature above freezing.

I have a friend who lives in St Louis Park and she has a fancy greenhouse with insulated glass and a small heater.  When the days get really cold, she'll throw old quilts and burlap blankets over the greenhouse and switch on her LED grow lights.

If you're gonna read anything by Pynchon, read the opening scene to Gravity's Rainbow. Probably the only worthwhile scene in the book.
