    The picture was taken at San Diego Botanical Garden. The organization I belong to California Rare Fruit Growers maintains the fruit garden there. We have numerous types of bananas growing there. We are blessed with great weather here in Northern SD county. It does allow us to grow a wide range of things.

    Your picture almost looks like a jungle. Your grow quite a wide variety of vegetables and fruits. I just have five raised garden beds in the backyard.

    Have a great California day.
