Babaco

From two small seedlings I have managed to grow two rather elegant looking Babaco (Vasconcellea × heilbornii; syn. Carica pentagona). They grow so well in the garden and are simply planted into large 50 cm pots. This year I have decided to propagate them which means I am likely to miss out on the fruit for a while, but will end up with a small plantations worth of trees which has been the long term goal. 
I originally received them through the post from Diggers Club but have not seen them offered to Western Australia for some time since. I estimate these are probably close to five years of age.
