Bananas Grow
In Old Virginia
(INS) Bananas can be raised as
far north as Virginia, and so can
lemon trees with lemons as big
as grapefruit.
Walter H. Page, a Charlottes
ville florist, has had a flourishing
line of banana plants for the last
40 years.
The plants grow up to the roof
of the greenhouse, bear a full
crop of bananas after 12 or 18
months, and then die. New plants
then emerge from the roots.
Page planted his lemon tree 25
years ago. He feeds it all year
round so that the fruit comes big
as a grapefruit
"The lemon tree bears continu
ously, and we also have bananas
most all the time from the sprout
ing banana plants," Page said,
"The school children and their
parents get a lot of them."
