Re: Datil flowers in June
Dan, it's not just the red trunk. That plant ARS GRIN has photos of clearly has an AA genome, as they indicate. Yours has an AAB genome. They are very different plants. Whatever they sent you seems to be a great plant. It's just not what would normally be referred to as "Datil", which is usually used to refer to certain AA genome bananas. It's just another case banana confusion, apparently by the people providing the TC plants.
Given that it looks a lot like Dwarf Brazilian, does it taste like DB? To me, it looks like an extra short, stout DB. Which would make it a perfect banana, by my reckoning!
