Re: Banana update

How long did it take to bear fruit Jim? The banana I bought early this
year is did well. Family commented on when would we get banana's-
answer- as soon as we and the plant move to the deep south LOL! Anyways,
I did bring it indoors in an attempt to overwinter it. Is it possible to
survive the winter indoors? or ever produce fruit in this climate by
bringing it in for the winters and keeping it alive? What kind of
insects pollinate it and do you need another plant to succeed?

Can you tell I don't know a thing about banana growing!

This is the Goldfinger variety. Four hands so far, and if the weather 
holds, we should get a lot more. Yahoo, incidentally, didn't like the 
name "goldfinger," so I had to take it off to get the pictureposted.
