A 'Texas Star' is a cold hardy Dwarf Orinoco.
"Even though some banana trees exhibit striking cold hardy qualities, most cultivars are tropical in nature, and will not survive freezing winter temperatures, however, some banana cultivars are very resilient and can surge from a Winter deep freeze to grow into a mature banana tree with giant clusters of bananas, delicious to the taste. Such a banana was discovered growing in Wichita Falls, TX, that survived the fabled freeze of 1983 ? 84 of minus 16 degrees F. to regrow and produce a crop of bananas the following year. This extraordinary cold hardy banana was named ''Texas Star'' Banana." ~source: http://www.freelibrary.com

It did really well in it's container out in the near Zone 6 temps here in Texas this past Winter!!

I am enjoying watching it grow!! :) ~Cheryl
