Here is a picture of the fruit from the catalog.

It says it is common in south Florida so the chances of making it to Puerto Rico is high.

Thoughts and comments are appreciated!

High are you doing Senor Pavo!.....

This is HMelendez again!...As you mentioned the TARS Musa catalog is one of the most useful tools!...

Pome are in the AAB variety......Pisang Awak "aka" Namwah is a ABB variety...a different variety classification....

Namwah is one of the most common/growing banana cultivars in Florida!....

Then you got the Dwarf and the Tall Namwah (Pisang Awak) varieties!....

Hopefully it helps, my friend!....
