Do they really need that much more heat than eating varieties? Sydney's a pretty warm place

I know folks growing plantains in Perth (and getting fruit) they have a few other types too...so worth a shot - especially in a warm sheltered spot maybe..?

Plantains will grow in Sydney. I grow a few, such as Bluggoe, Pacific Plantain. They do well

To people north of Brisbane who feel it necessary to constantly tell us we can't grow anything please remember Sydney is not in the Antartic we can grow Mangoes, Bananas (I just harvested 80 kilos off my Cavendish, see my profile pic) Avocados, Guava, Mamey Sapote ect.

Yeah, anything that can tolerate a long winter will be fine. I was once told I couldn't grow a rollinia by someone at Cape Tribulation. At that time my tree had at least twice as many fruits as his. He had obviously never tried.

BJ is your rollinia a named variety/grafted or what? I have one, doing well but it is a seedling. How long can I expect to wait to get some fruit?

Mines a seedling. Took well under 4 years. They are fast. I hand pollinate, essentially the same as cherimoya pollination, but you have to keep the pollen in the fridge overnight. Works a treat.

I was thinking of getting another one, depending on how well they crop. How many fruit do you usually get?

Hi BeachBabe
I am thinking for last couple months to get some, just wondering if you would like to sell some. I live in Sydney. Would like to know if you would like to share with me your experience of preparation/cooking?
Thank you

We have successful banana plants that fruit very well at the Hawkesbury EarthCare Centre in Richmond, so they will definitely grow & fruit in Sydney. Richmond get's pretty hard frosts some years but we just wrap the body of the plant so that the core doesn't freeze.

I would also like to plant some Plantains if anyone is selling suckers :-)

Thanks, Michelle

Blue Sky Bananas now offers many different types.
Will not offer any advice on cultivation in future as global warming makes nearly all of Australia tropical now ;)
