Oregon's Banana Belt

Brookings really is the subtropical banana belt of Oregon. Bananas grow in other parts of Western Oregon but it's in Brookings where they grow year 'round. There are also Phoenix canariensis, washingtonia and a number of other palms as well as citrus and other subtropicals thriving in Brookings. If you want to live in Oregon and grow a literal jungle of subtropical plants, move to Brookings or Gold Beach. You need to be able to handle 80" of rain but rarely will you get a frost on your pumpkin.
