Default Re: Are these bananas Muso Basjo?

Dude, I don't know what govt workers you are relying on, but unless they are planning on doing dna testing on your bananas, I would listen to Gabe. To be certain you receive what you order, on here is where you should buy plants. See my signature to see what I mean. I have bought several bananas from "reputable" suppliers, and most were wrong.
Gabe took one look at my avatar and told me it's not a Manzano(Which is what I ordered) but a Brazilian. To be honest, I wasn't sure I believed him, either, being new here but when ripe, I ate one... Brazilian is what they tasted like. I don't know where he learned to id bananas, but I think he's pretty good at it.
Maybe he is like me, once I watch a plant grow, I can tell them apart by even the most subtle of characteristics. That is why I find it frustrating when I get the wrong plants. I need to know what I have.
If you lose your head and give up, you neither live nor win.

Varieties I supposedly bought: Manzano, Cavendish, Blue Java, Sweetheart, and Gros Michel.
What it seems I actually have: Brazilian, Cavendish, Namwah, Dwarf Red, Gros Michel, Pisang Ceylon, Veinte Cohol and SH 3640, and American Goldfinger. FHIA 1, Paggi and FHIA 17... Always room for one more.
