    Hi Darcie,

    Do you mean Paw Paw which is native to Michigan and has fruit which is reminisant of Bananas. There are several cultivars from Michigan.

    If you are looking for hardy bananas, you can find them in good plant catalogs. They will need lots of protection in Michigan if you want them to survive the Winter!

    There is a city in Southwestern Michigan Named Paw Paw. Several varieties of Paw Paw have been bred here in Michigan. I live here and have yet to see one in the wild. I know they are here, I just don't think they are very common and are only in certain sections of the State.

    I've been thinking about planting some in my yard but haven't yet. My Father has two seedlings growing in his yard in Ohio which he planted. They grow very slowly almost as slow as CPs!
