That is the site for Calif. Rare Fruit Growers. They have a huge database
on all tropicals--how to grow, fruit, etc.
I, too, have some tropicals here in Zone 4b Wisconsin. I moved to the
Arctic three years ago from Gulf Coast Texas and brought some of the plants
with me. I have a Raja Puri banana, about ready to fruit, a dwarf Cavenish
banana (given to me by Nafex member), brugmansia, bird of paradise, Mexican
Breadfruit (Monstera deliciosa), which is fruiting now and an avocado. It's
a challenge to provide enough heat for them indoors during the long winter,
plus plenty of sunlight. I have them all in south-facing windows and in
from of floor heat vents. This seems to work, because they all grow during
the winter months.
