Default Re: Dwarf Brazilian?

Here's what mine looked like last time I took a pic before cutting off the flower...

Gabe told me it's a Brazilian... It flowered at 9 feet, and the original TC flowered at 8. They are small fruits, about 4 inches or so and not very fat. I let them begin to ripen on the plant and they did not split, either. It took 9 months to flower from a TC plant and 5 months to ripen, from November 24 to March 27th. They are sweet with a slight acid flavor with fruity undertones, hard to describe. Like I said, the rachis is messy at first but cleans up after about half a dozen bracts or so and it has a relatively thin PS...
Our two are not likely the same banana.

That's all I got, hope it helps.
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.
