Default Re: Namwah or Dwarf Namwah ?

I would guess it is a tall Namwah, and not the dwarf based on the info and photos so far. If you can post a picture of the entire plant it will help though. My tall Namwah types typically fruit in their first generation at about 8-12ft, and then reach up to about 15-20ft by the 3rd and 4th generation. I have never grown the dwarf to fruiting, but in my experience seeing many of the plants on other farms, they have typically been very short, 5-8ft max.
Growing bananas in Colorado, Washington, Hawaii since 2004. Commercial banana farmer, 200+ varieties.
