Default Re: Ae Ae from thailand


All I know is that I have both Saba, and Ae Ae. I livein Daytoina Beach Florida. I have had the same Saba mat for well over 10 years. In all that time mine have indeed gotten very tall and on managed to produce 5 stalks if fruit. Of all of them, they have all shriveled up and died on the tree. This plant was a TC plant and might have something to do with it, that was also well tended to and fertilized always, but it is a gorgeous plant that has grown from my yard into 2 neighbors and so I left it there. I have since cut mine down and planted a Mekong giant. I also have an AeAe that had grown nicely and made fruit on both trees, but the SOOOO many suckers that never manage to grow, and the fruit that the fruit is also pink to orange and better suited for cooking. Besides that their beauty is worth th e trouble but not a rewarding banana.
