Re: help! Is this Bunchy Top Virus???
From what I understand the Red is an AAA like the Cavendish varieties, but not a Cavendish. Gros Michel and others are also AAA. I think most folks would be hard pressed to taste much difference between Gran Nain, Williams, and other cavendish types. The difference tasted may just be because of where/how they were grown, what state of ripeness they were picked at, etc.
