I grew this banana when I lived in Hayward, CA.(San Francisco Bay Area) This banana (Musa veluntina) is only edible when it splits only has about a bite full to eat...however, the ants usually get to them first. : > )

I might add -- it's the easiest banana to grow in CA and
hardy to U.S.D.A Zone 7.

This banana is available in many nurseries in San Diego.
It is available at Walter Anderson Nursery, San Diego, CA.
