|We live in Colorado, and have a sunroom w/electric heat & southern exposure. Temperature is kept min 60 deg. Can we grown dwarf banana plant? If we get one what do we have to do to grow, polinate, fertilize, etc.? Do you have flyer on? What other dwarf fruit trees would work?|
|Oh, I'm jealous! When I grow up, I'm going to have a sunroom full of tropical fruit trees, too! You should be able to ripen bananas in these conditions, but you may need to supplement light during the short days of winter, and use shades when thesun is most intense. Here are some suppliers of informational texts, bananas and other greenhouse fruit varieties:|
