Just one question:
Are you considering eating the small bananas this one produces?... are the fruits safe enough to eat?

I had one once but I left it half abandoned because I found some reports stating the fruit was no good for human consumption... I seem to remember that on the native area of origin the fruits were used to feed pigs or something like that...

In fact this Musa sp. ( I think the correct name is Musela lasiocarpa) was very interesting not only for the beautiful flower but because it supported very low temperatures... it felt at home on my 9a climate... but the edibility doubts made me loose interest...

Luc... do you want it for food or as a pure ornamental?
Carlos... did you ate your fruits?... were they good/sweet?

Thank you all in advance for your comments.

Hello Luc,

So I went to check my plant and even if it has been totally neglected for years I found it still alive... moreover it has lots of small pups around... If you have asked earlier some of these pups could be waiting for you in Belgium by now...

Did you managed to find any seed supplier for this?... How long will you stay in Belgium?
