Leb Mu Nang is smaller no more than an inch thick and is very flagrant. They are sold at a higher price then others.
We understand that. We also understand that it is a pure tropical AA cultivar. There is no way you can grow it or any other edible banana outdoors year-round in zone 7a. You will need to care for it in a large container and grow it indoors 6 months of the year. If you set up indoor greenhouse conditions with 1200 Watts of 6500 Kelvin fluorescent indoor lighting per banana plant for the indoor period you could expect it to fruit about every 2.5 years.
