Cassabanana

I got one at Daleys in April and it has grown wonderfully through the winter and now if totally covered in fruits! VERY excited for these to ripen!! The vine is extremely vigorous and seems to love the climate. | Kevin Redd - Sunshine Coast, QLD 15-Oct-2015

I purchased mine last year, it is huge and was covered in male flowers for some time. It has now started producing female flowers going into winter. Im hoping that they make it through till spring. Possums seem happy eating the leaves. | Debbie Lowe - Redland City, QLD 11-May-2017
