Good start for the edible bananas this year

This is the clump I got fruit from last fall. It was labeled "Ice Cream", but I don't think that is what i have. I wrapped the trunk with plastic-covered fiberglass insulation rolls that you can buy at any of the home improvement stores to give them a head start this year. Growing conditions have been near ideal this year with a dryish early spring and a very wet late spring. I also was able to overwinter my tropical hibiscus by using small enclosures with a string of mini-christmas lights inside.
