Re: When to cut the bunch?
Hey pitangadiego, I was speaking with Don from Going Bananas at the Leu Gardens plant sale last month. I special ordered a Kandrian banana from him based upon your report that it ripens a bunch very quickly for you. He said that most of his bananas mature a bunch in about 3 months. I imagine that being in San Diego, which is a cooler, Mediterranean climate, that you may not get as fast a growth rate on your plants as somebody in the hot, humid Southeast. That and maybe a bunch matures quicker in the SE also. Does that sound fair? I really never gave it much thought until recently. At any rate, he said that Kandrian was an impressive plant that grew fast and large. Looking forward to watching it grow!
