Default Re: First FHIA 1 Goldfinger (American) bloom

Is this the banana you're calling a Goldfinger?

The Goldfinger is a very stout plant and none of the ones I've grown have ever needed to be propped even with their huge bunches.

Can you post a photo of the male bud.

I now understand this variety MUST be propped!
