Default Re: Panama Disease ID

There are no signs of Panama Disease there, and you are correct that 'Goldfinger' is resistant to all of the race's which affect banana. If it was Panama Disease (which it's not), removing the plant would really not help to save your other plants as it is a disease which lives in the soil primarily, not in the plant.

However, the plant was flowering when you cut it. Perhaps the flowering was interrupted and aborted for some reason and so that's why the plant decayed.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
