Montana's Banana Belt?
[Return to Topics]

Hi Ya'll,

I'm picking up different things online regarding which part of western Montana has the mildest climate. Some claim Thompson Falls takes the prize while others state the Hamilton area is the "banana belt". What's your opinion?
Thanks in advance....

Having trucked out of both places, with loads, I'd take Hamilton. Nice little town, draw poker and lowball in the local saloon, good resturants (not fancy nor high priced), easy access from the North, but boy that road to the South is a witch. Lost Trail Pass, hairpin turns and switch back city. Takes a while to navigate a 42ft trailer on a long nose tractor over it. Climmate wise though it's great. Not much snow in the winter, nice river (don't freeze over), and mild summers (below 90 most of the time).

Always thought bananas came from tropical climates or one of those plants you ordered out of a catalog and tried on your patio. Interesting crop for the U.S.

They grow lots of bananas in Montana and pineapples, too. It was one of the places Jake and I considered before we bought our banana farm in Kansas.
