A cold-hardy banana tree for Adair County

2014-06-06 - 1535 Bull Run Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Barbara Armitage. Wayne Armitage stretches to his full height in front of a towering Musa Basjoo banana tree at Tucker's Station farms. The tree is native to the Ryuku Islands near Japan. It can be grown directly in the ground year round, here in South Central Kentucky and even as far north as Canada. This one appears to be about the maximum height the plant is known to grow, about 14 feet. Barbara Armitage will have them available Saturday, June 7, 2014, at the Farmers Market on the Square, which is held each Saturday, 8am-1pmCT, in the Adair Annex Parking Lot, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY.
