Bananas In California

Is there any reason why bananas would not grow and bear in the vicinity

of Merced if they had plenty of water? Or would the cool nights at

certain seasons keep them from bearing? Would they do better in the

Imperial valley?

Bananas would suffer too severely from frost to be profitable at any

point in the interior valleys of California. A plant would be killed to

the ground at least every year unless under glass or other protection.

There are a few places practically frostless where bananas can be grown

in this State, but there is no promise in commercial production because

they can be so cheaply imported from the tropics.
