Tom I forgot to mention.... that dwarf banana died. That's the second one I've killed, and both were given to me by the same co-worker. He told me that bananas like lots of potassium, and I think I gave it enough, but maybe not.

The wierd thing is, I had a dwarf banana for several years back in the '80s which was given to me by a friend of my father's. That one never fruited but at least it lived.

karenlovessnow I had a great aunt and uncle, back in the day, who had a fig tree. I remember it always being loaded with figs. It was awesome.

Tom ^^^ I've heard that fresh figs are delicious, but they don't ship well- so quite a few people have never had them fresh- only dried.

Tom A former co-worker of mine grew dwarf bananas which were always sending up suckers/offshoots, and he gave me one of the potted offshoots before he retired. But over the past few weeks it's suddenly lost its leaves and is just a sort of trunk now. It hasn't gotten more than a foot high so far. I don't know if it's one of the varieties that produces edible fruit.

I think the dwarf citrus and dwarf bananas are the most ornamental.

Kiwibird08 I had a lovely dwarf kumquat tree for quite a few years. It fruited the first year, but never did again (I think because you have to hand pollinate, which I never did). I gave it away when we moved out of state.
