I've mentioned this plant before, but haven't posted a picture. check out this hardy banana known as musa basjoo! it doesn't produce edible bananas, but it's giant and beautiful and can survive here in MA.
@noorul there are no bananas that I know of that can produce fruit in my climate. food for animals is best left to native plants. for example, I'm growing winterberry to provide food for birds in the winter.
@noorul Massachusetts, USA. USDA hardiness zone 6a.
@dthompson they said on that video that the leaves could be used, I think for making tamales. So they are edible, even if no bananas
@GwenfarsGarden yeah! using it as a wrap for food sounds great.
@dthompson I've seen what look like those around here, they tend to die back to an ugly stub in winter, but do come back..
