Hi everyone.

I have a very interesting question. I found on the Internet while I was browsing plants a plant called Musa Orinoco, a kind of edible banana. According to my internet research, This plant is for zone 8-11, BUT, according a lot of other forums I have been reading, It can grow down to zone 7 outdoors no problem. Some websites that sell it even say zone 7-11.

I am not trying to get my hopes up, but I am in zone 7, and I am trying to figure out if it is true that it can grow in zone 7. 2/3 of my sources say yes, and the other third says yes with protection. I am not sure which is true.

Here is a web link to one of the sellers and their information.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This could be a problem of your zone 7 does not equal their zone 7. But you will never know until you try.
