Nice looking banana trees! Did you ever think about growing any Pawpaw trees? I managed to start some from seeds that I got from the Pawpaw fest that they have every September in Athens Ohio.

We've actually got wild paw-paws growing down in our floodplain. They're in the shade, so we don't get many fruits, but paw-paws are pretty low on my list of favorite fruits so it seems to be enough. I've heard that different groups are cultivating varieties with a lot of improvements, though!
