    • COMING PALMTALK CHANGES - PLEASE READ   02/14/2017

      In the coming week (probably beginning this weekend), several major changes will be occurring with PalmTalk. The result will be short periods of complete closure, or of limited viewing (that is, no posting - but viewing still possible). These changes are major and unexpected complications are always a possibility. So, please be patient and bear with us. For those interested, the first phase will be a migration of the entire site to a new more powerful server. After this is completed, a major upgrade to the newest version of the forum software will then be attempted. It is hoped that these improvements, along with some new configurations of various parameters made possible with the new server capabilities, will result in an elimination of some error messages and glitches which have been plaguing various tasks and viewing recently. As with any upgrade there will probably be some new and/or changed features, or ways of viewing and/or using the forum. I anticipate these will be minor, and as always if there is anything confusing or needing explanation, we will set up a topic to discuss them.

That is a nice bonus after freezing, i would say.

Ed, i used to grow bananas, but i dont recognize that particular plant....there is a Musa acuminata 'lady fingers', but it doesn't look like that one...at first i thought 'Orinoco', but the terminal inflorescence looks wrong.........

Regardless, that is pretty cool after such low temps...thanks for the pics!

Sad, that they wont ripen with out leaves.

I have a variety here in central CA that fruits every winter even when the leaves freeze off, they regrow new ones and fruit in July.
