I am looking for the Cavendish banana plant. Or another good tasting banana plant.
Others I am looking for are:
Vanilla, that makes the real vanilla bean
Ginger, that is the real ginger you eat.
Also avocado, meyers lemon, or a good orange.
I have some things on my list, but not all have been listed.
I am looking for the heirloom types if at all possible.
Thank you,

You can buy the 'edible' Ginger root at the grocery store and plant that - makes a nice plant. You can also start an Avocado tree from a store-bought Avacado - just plant the seed.

Meyer Lemon trees are in lots of box stores now, so check there.

None of these will be hardy in your area - do you have a heated, well-lit space to store these plants over winter?
