No, we do have bananas

Back in August, when a Sacramento nonprofit brought its Banana Festival to Stockton, we looked in vain for any banana-growing farmer in San Joaquin County.

But they don”t grow here. Too cold, said the county Agricultural Commissioner.

That brought an e-mail from Margatita Diaz. Diaz said bananas grow nicely in her yard.

Now Diaz writes back with a “crop report:” “Just wanted to update on my Stockton grown bananas. I cut 1 of 2 bundles down this morning.  Now just waiting for them to ripen.”

Looking good. Diaz, however, didn’t say what she does with her bananas. Eat them? Smoothies? Daquiries?
