    Try mail-order from Perry out of Montreal. I've ordered from him several times in the past and his stock is always good but he can be a little hard to get a hold of (especially during the winter).
    Shipping costs are pretty reasonable as well


    I picked up my Babaco at the PNWPEPS plant sale about 5 years ago when it was about 3ft tall and its now touching the ceiling (and it has produced fruit in the past).....they are not a common or easy plant to find in Canada.
    FYI, PNWPEPS sale is always in May, just not sure of the exact date at this time
