I'm looking for large pieces of banana leaves to use as decor and for cooking Filipino food. I've seen posts for frozen banana leaves. Anyone seen any fresh?

    If you can come to east bay, Berkeley Bowl always has it fresh.

      Ask your neighbors, banana plants grow fine here. Decorative only, don't produce edible fruit but leaves and blossoms no problem.
