Do they arrive still viable after a long travel? Eg: to Europe?

Yes, corms are stable and I have shipped to Europe in the past without issue.

I know folks that grow in 9a and below but 9b and above is optimal. Dwarf Red and pitogo are the most sensitive of the bunch and will not do well in 9a. It may take more time for the mats to develop and provide fruit below 9b, but it's definitely doable in 9a. Just plant them in a protected area. I wouldnt recommend pots at all. The roots really expand out on bananas and they will become root bound quickly.

Can you confirm all varieties are seedless?

Bumping this up to the top with an updated list of what I have available. I will be shipping on Monday-Tuesday and then I'm going away for about a month. I should have more varieties when I get back at the end of July.

Do the prices include shipping?

Also, which variety is the SH-3460? Googling doesn't yield much info.

Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

No, I use USPS priority flat rate boxes which run around $15 for a medium and $19 for a large. You're not finding it because it's actually SH-3640. Sorry

Im Zone 9A looking for some Bananas that will give me fruit. What are the best options for me if any? I would prefer one that will fruit without me having to protect the pseudostem. Last winter we had prolly a total of 12 hours all winter of below 32'F. Just enough to ruin ones hopes of having bananas. (I sent this to you in a PM)

Glad to hear it. One thing that I have noticed with Pitogo is that the first inflorescence tends not to hold fruit for some reason. Sometimes it does, but don't be disappointed. I have always gotten fruit the second time around. I have two baring currently.
